Robinson and its forerunner has played an active role in northeastern Wisconsin’s economy for nearly a century. Beginning with Al Robinson’s initial business venture in 1923 and continuing through the rest of the 20th century under the leadership of Al’s sons, Maurie and Tom, Robinson has earned a reputation as a trusted partner for a wide range of customers.

Today’s Robinson is a single-source metal fabrication supplier employing more than 500 people at facilities in De Pere and Manitowoc, Wisconsin. With expertise in enclosures, product handling, and ASME piping and vessels, Robinson offers end-to-end solutions. Our three locations comprise 500,000 square feet of climate-controlled manufacturing space.

Robinson Metal didn’t start out as a fabricating powerhouse with cutting-edge capabilities, but we’ve always had metal in our blood. Al Robinson, founder of Badger Sheet Metal, raised sons Maurie and Tom Robinson in the world of metal. Their entrepreneurial spirit is the core of Robinson Metal today: a state-of-the-art facility, a dedicated workforce, and quality workmanship.
