This summer Bear Metal Plant 1 had its flat roof torn off, replaced the wood structure and had a new membrane put on top of it to secure it for the future from damage and/or leaks. After the asbestos was removed from the roof, the boarded up windows along side the building/roof were replaced with brand new glass and ventilation windows.
Bear Metal Works has continuously increased its’ sales total each year it has been in business. This year, 2015, Bear Metal Works plans to eclipse the $5 million mark! While consistently fabricating quality products and improving our facilities and equipment, Bear Metal Works is becoming the premier sheet metal fabricator in Western New York. We plan on growing our customer base and cementing ourselves as the “one-stop” shop in the region.
Bear Metal Works is very excited to announce it has recently purchased a new building to accommodate its expansion of new machinery and hiring of employees. This building, at 45 Scoville Ave, is directly behind our Milton St. plant across the railroad tracks. This building has 20,000 sq. ft. of shop space.
The Buffalo Zoo is currently re-designing and upgrading the polar bear facility and enclosure. This project is going to be completed over the next few years and is costing millions of dollars. The Zoo has welcomed this past summer two baby polar bears (Luna and Kali) and they have become a community favorite. This new exhibit will help the city keep these bears here.
With the merging of Denler Stainless, Bear Metal Works has made major improvements to its Milton St. location. We recently replaced the entire shop floor with new concrete for more equipment to be installed and for easier driving abilities.
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. Chris’ expertise is both artistic and architectural, which will allow Bear Metal Works to increase its capacity as well as broaden its’ customer base.
