At Metal Shop we strongly believe in the Made in America ethos. We take it one step further and make all our product right in our home state of Connecticut. We utilize a number of small family run machine shops to manufacture our main components. All the detail work (known as "hand work") is done on site at Metal Shop HQ so no product goes out the door without our stamp of approval. I personally consider both of these shops family.
