Denler Sheet Metal, a custom stainless fabrication shop which has been operating in Buffalo since WWII, has been acquired by Bear Metal Works. Chris Beyer, DSM’s current owner, and Barrett have worked together for over 20 years and have decided to combine their businesses.

Polar bears have adapted to a lifetime in the cold Arctic temperatures, from the texture of their fur to the way they reproduce and care for their young. They highly depend on sea ice which unfortunately makes them a very vulnerable species. The status of large carnivores such as polar bears are obvious indicators of ecosystem health. Polar bears are being studied to gain an understanding of what is happening throughout the Arctic. Polar bears at risk are often signs of something wrong somewhere in the arctic marine ecosystem.

We increased our office space and employee break room area from 250 square ft. to 2,250 sq ft. We now have a conference room, reception area, private office, engineering area and as well as remodeled bathrooms (sure beats the porto-potty). We also installed a new phone system and upgraded our office furniture. If you would like a personal tour, we would be more than happy to arrange one for you (please call for appt.).
2007 was a banner year for Bear Metal Works. Not only did we expand into a full service steel fabrication shop, but we exceeded all expectations with over $1 million in annual sales. Thanks to great customers like you, we hope to continue this growth with an acquisition of another company in the upcoming year. This will expand the range of our capabilities and increase employment with new jobs.
While Bear Metal Works is growing, so is the city of Buffalo and Western New York.
