Hamilton Metalcraft is a family-owned business founded in 1965 with an expertise in product development, sheet metal manufacturing, and customer satisfaction. In the early days there was more of an emphasis on electronics than sheet metal but that changed when the company changed ownership.

in 1979 Melvin Stahler purchased the business from his partner and brother, beginning the modernization of the job shop. Born prior to the great depression, Melvin came of age during World War II when he volunteered to fight with the United States Army Air Corps at the young age of 17. As part of his service he was trained in electronics, communication, supply chain management and aerospace before being shipped out to the Pacific theater.

Melvin carried this military training and knowledge for the rest of his life. After the war he used the GI bill to get an education and continue learning about the world of electronics. Out of school he worked exclusively in the electronics industry but by the mid 50’s he’d transitioned into the world of precision sheet metal fabrication.

When the shop changed ownership in 1979 Melvin used the skills and principles he learned while serving to better the business. He put an emphasis in quality management systems like the ones he learned in the military to better serve defense contractors and the aerospace industry. This was a large reason for the shop’s success and longevity.

In his time of owning the shop, Melvin, got to see many amazing projects come to life. He saw his parts put on rockets and launched into space, in a few cases, even sent to the surface of Mars and the Moon.

Our reputation for excellence is hard earned and we pride ourselves on the partnerships we build with our clients.
