Our Story

Sheet metal work runs in the family. My parents owned a unionized sheet metal business since the late 70’s. It was a natural transition for me, in 1982, following high school, to pursue the opportunity to work as a sheet metal apprentice. By age 21, I was a certified Journeyman Sheetmetal worker. During those years the company worked on numerous projects such as; hospitals and schools for HVAC. This involved working with teams of 3 – 17 workers on various million dollar ductwork and metal edge related building projects, to name only a few.

In 2005, I decided to branch out to create my own unionized family business. It was then that my wife Stephanie and I established H&N Sheet Metal. We elected to name the company after our two children, Haley and Nathan.

Our first project was a six-year-long hospital project and this set us on our way. We’ve since diversified and do a wider range of project work but we do tend do specialize somewhat with hospital and schools. Currently, we are managing 3 schools and one college building project.

For the first thirteen years, we were located in West Kelso in a 13,000 sq foot building and in 2017 we had an opportunity to acquire a much larger facility. Now, we are located in Longview, WA within a 31,000 sq foot building and this enabled us to expand our offerings considerably.

Along with my key employee, Jamey Jenson, we manage projects with upwards of 23 employees at any given time. We value the skills of our unionized staff members.

All client projects are unique and we adhere to best quality procedures.

The St. John’s medical project is a good example of the level of detail that can be required. In this case we did a series of upgrades from top to bottom throughout the entire building. Working in a hospital type institution, such as St. John’s, we follow strict protocols and recognize that sanitation is a vital priority. When installing ventilation, for example, this requires that the insides of all duct work is first wiped down with alcohol and is then sealed. It remains securely sealed until we systematically unseal it during the installation process.

We’ve also worked on newer types of designs using VRF’s. This is a type of refrigeration system that has piping that runs into individual rooms with their own ducted fan coils or ductless fan coils such as within hotel rooms etc.
