Integrating Value and Efficency Across the Supply Chain
Craftsman Custom Metals, LLC was founded as Craftsman Sheet Metal, Inc. specializing in manufacturing quick turnaround sheet metal prototypes serving the Chicago area, predominately Motorola.   The company name changed to Craftsman Custom Metal Fabricators, Inc. and began expanding its target markets, customer base, and manufacturing services to include production runs.   The company merged with a local metal stamping company, greatly enhancing the company's breadth by being able to offer prototypes, fabrication, tool design and build, high-volume stampings, and complete mechanical assembly services.   Craftsman Custom Metal Fabricators, Inc. was acquired by an investment group. This new sheet metal platform offered strategic regional coverage for current and prospective customers, and began the transition to Cellular Manufacturing dedicating personnel, capital equipment, and floor space to specific customers and/or products.
On August 1, 2001, Julio Gesklin acquired the company back from the investment group and began operating as Craftsman Custom Metals, LLC under new ownership and with the return of former key personnel, to better serve current and prospective customers.   Craftsman Custom Metals, LLC celebrates 50 years of providing high-quality products and services and completes the transition into a Work Cell environment.
