Quality Metal Fabrication Since 1908

For over 100 years, Milwaukee Metal Products has been a family owned metal shop on Milwaukee’s northwest side.

Milwaukee Metal Products was founded by August Podolske as a tin shop in 1908 under a different name, Podolske Sheet Metal Works. August’s son Arthur soon took over the business when August passed away. In the 1940’s, with the onset of WWII, the business shifted from sheet metal work to fabrication to aid the war effort. The company officially incorporated as Milwaukee Metal Products Company in 1947. Arthur’s children Warren and Betty joined the family business in 1949. Betty Jane Parrott, the 4th generation to lead Milwaukee Metal Products joined the company in 1973 after receiving her degree in electrical engineering, followed by an MBA, both from UW-Milwaukee. Betty Jane took over as President in 2001.
