History (To view the Gallery slide show go HERE).

A pioneer of the region’s traditions in quality sheet metal work, Budde Sheet Metal Works, Inc. has served commerce and industry since 1922 when it was founded by John Budde and his son Leo.

Throughout the years, Budde Sheet Metal Works, Inc.’s facility changed locations and in the 1950’s moved to our current location on Leo Street.

Leo’s three sons and brother all became involved with the family business and proved to be invaluable to the company’s operations. In later years, Leo’s grandsons and nephew joined the family business.

Budde Sheet Metal Works, Inc. is currently owned and operated by the third and fourth generation of Buddes.

Budde Sheet Metal Works, Inc. opened a second location in Lima, Ohio in 2006. The Lima location is managed by Dave Swick.

The current owners and operators of Budde Sheet Metal Works, Inc. take pride in the history of their family business and the superb reputation that Budde Sheet Metal Works, Inc. has in the sheet metal industry.

Throughout the 94 years that Budde Sheet Metal Works, Inc. has been in business, it has been on the forefront of industry development.
