History of Sheet Metal Fabrication

Prescott Metal was founded in 1918 by Chris Prescott

Prescott Metal was founded in 1918 by Chris Prescott, a young English blacksmith and sheet metal worker who came to America in search of a new life. During the ensuing years, Prescott Metal prospered as a small family-owned sheet metal shop, servicing business and industrial firms within a thirty mile radius of Biddeford, Maine. In 1964, the firm expanded its services and market area. Since then, employment has more than tripled, the plant has expanded four times and new state of the art machinery and capabilities were added.

Over 90 years later, Prescott Metal is known to be one of the best custom sheet metal fabricators in New England. Today, Prescott Metal is a supplier of precision sheet metal, structural components, and precision tubular frames for a wide variety of machinery and equipment manufacturers. We deal primarily in stainless steel, aluminum and carbon steel fabrications.

With our precision equipment and highly trained experienced personnel, we are able to maintain dimensional tolerances of +/- .005 of an inch and angular tolerances of +/- ½ degree. We wet paint and powder coat to the requirements of our customers, and also provide quality silk screening services in-house. Our delivery fleet allows us to deliver finished goods to our customers on time and in good condition without having to rely of the uncertainties of common carrier services.
