Quality, Commitment, Service, and Satisfaction


Our renowned reputation in the professional metal works industry began modestly in 1940, when Paul W. Stromberg, a veteran of the Navy and U.S. Merchant Marine founded Stromberg Sheet Metal Works of Washington, using his unique expertise to assist the military with extensive work for the War and Navy Departments during World War II. In 1950, Stromberg hired a young engineer named Cavet Snyder and together, the two were able to lead the growing company through years of rapid expansion. In 1958, Mr. Robert Gawne, a 1950 graduate of Notre Dame with a BS in Mechanical Engineering was hired as Chief Engineer, further leading the way towards making Stromberg Metal Works, Inc. an industry leader in all facets of metals works throughout Washington DC.

After nearly 30 years of service in Maryland, Virginia & Pennsylvania, Mr. Robert Gawne purchased Stromberg Sheet Metal, Inc. from the then current owners in 1987. Proudly proclaiming the company an employee-owned and operated entity, Mr. Robert Gawne and 102 employees became the new owners of Stromberg Sheet Metal, Inc. through an Employee Stock Option Plan.
