providING custom metal fabrication and personalized service since 1969

After bravely serving his country in the Army Air Corps during World War II as a radio operator on board a B-17 bomber, founder Carl Lambert worked in airplane manufacturing and assembly. When he joined the local Sheet Metal Workers Union #98, he took a job managing Trico Metals. When Trico’s owner passed away, Carl and Betty, his wife, secured a loan to buy the business. Thus, Lambert Sheet Metal, Inc. was born in July 1969, this was the same week Neil Armstrong landed on the moon.

Carl’s vision for the company can be summarized in one word: quality. Using his metalworking expertise developed over decades in the industry, Carl shifted the focus of the company away from ductwork to custom fabrication and cladding.

In 1975, Lambert Sheet Metal clad its first storefront for The Limited Corporation, an up-and-coming retail clothing company. Impressed by Lambert Sheet Metal’s quality craftsmanship and service, what started as a few jobs turned into thousands of storefronts and a decades-long commercial relationship. During the 1980s, Lambert Sheet Metal was one of the pioneers of mirrored stainless steel fabrication. Since then, it has perfected its creation of mirrored stainless steel and remains one of the only metal supply companies to keep it in stock today.

Since its inception, Lambert Sheet Metal has fabricated thousands of storefronts and retail metal systems for businesses in all fifty states in the U.S. and in countries worldwide. Their work has spanned from repairing Air Force One to fabricating stainless steel handrails in the former World Trade Centers. Once customers experience our outstanding quality and service, they tend to stick with us. Some of our client relationships have spanned decades. 

President and founder Carl Lambert worked with his family at Lambert Sheet Metal, Inc. up until his death at the age of 92. Today, his daughter Sandy, runs the company, continuing his legacy of top-quality service and unparalleled expertise.
