Top Metal Companies

Leaders in the U.S. and Canadian markets

Building on the success of the Top Glass Fabricators rankings introduced last year, Glass Magazine is expanding its coverage to include the Top Metal Companies, featuring the leading manufacturers and fabricators of metal products in the United States and Canada. The Top Metal Companies include those that manufacture, fabricate and sell curtain wall, storefront and entrance, commercial interior and exterior railings, aluminum composite panels and exterior sun-control products to the glass and glazing industry. It does not include window manufacturers or contract glaziers. For information on the latter, see the Top 50 Glaziers Special Report.

Among the top metal companies in the United States and Canada are several that also have stand-alone glass fabrication plants where they produce tempered, insulating, laminated or decorative glass. Due to their unique product offerings, these fabricators are ranked separately from the Top Metal Companies. For information on these companies' glass fabrication capabilities, click here.

The majority of the information included in the Top Metal Companies comes directly from the manufacturers or fabricators themselves. In cases where a company did not provide information, we gathered sales estimates and other data from industry insiders, business credit resources and the respective companies' websites. Sales figures for these companies are shown as estimates. Although we provide specific sales data when it's available, many privately held companies do not release sales figures. As a result, fabricators are listed alphabetically within five sales range categories.

While we don't make any definitive claims about the Top Metal Companies list, we believe the initial effort reflects leading companies within this industry segment. If your company belongs on the list, or you would like to update the information published here, please contact us. It is only with the cooperation of individual companies that Glass Magazine's Top Metal Companies can reflect the industry as it is today. Questions or comments about this year's list, and requests to be included next year can be sent to jchase@glass.org.
