Metals, Inc. is a family owned and operated business. Started as a contract
glazing firm in 1982 by Larry Dale, the company has evolved into a full
service architectural metals company servicing the glazing industry.
With over 40 years of contract glazing experience, Centco offers a unique
level of expertise to its customer. Our experience in your business
is the reason we understand and service your needs.
as an offshoot to Central Glass Company, an urban, center-city glass
shop in operation since 1946, Centco Glazing was set up to specifically
serve the construction industry as a contract glazing company. Centco
continued as such until the major construction downturn of the late
1980's and early 1990's. At that point, using the years of experience
gained fabricating aluminum products for Central Glass Company and then
for Centco, Larry Dale created a wholesale aluminum enterprise as an
adjunct to the contract glazing business. Eventually the fabrication
business became Centco Architectural Metals and the contract glazing
division was phased out.
years Centco has experienced a controlled, steady growth. Our company
offers a number of products and services to its customers, from our
fully tested CPW-200 operating window system, custom doors, storefronts
and curtainwalls (all in a wide array of finishes), to in-house production
of shop drawings and fabrication of our customer's metal.
