Quality, Commitment, Service, and Satisfaction


Our renowned reputation in the HVAC andprofessional 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. Together, the two were able to lead the growing company through years of rapid expansion.

In 1958, Robert Gawne, a 1950 graduate of Notre Dame with a Bachelor of Science 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 the Washington D.C. and Baltimore Metropolitan areas.

After nearly 30 years of service in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, Robert Gawne purchased Stromberg Sheet Metal, Inc. in 1987. Proudly proclaiming the company an employee-owned and operated entity, Robert Gawne and 102 employees became the new owners of Stromberg Sheet Metal, Inc. through an employee stock option plan.
