My interest in custom metal work began when I was in my early teens and had the opportunity to work on stock cars here in West Michigan. That experience ignited my passion, and once I got into high school, I took all of the metal working and machine shop classes available and apprenticed in a local die shop.

Once I graduated from high school, I worked as a machinist, furthering my skills and knowledge until times slowed down in 2001. Determined to follow my passion, I purchased some of my own equipment with the ultimate goal of starting my own business. It wasn’t easy. Over the next few years, I did personal work and side jobs in addition to working at my day job, but the challenges of starting my own company were daunting, and frankly, there were times when I didn’t think that I could do it. I doubted myself so much that I kept putting it off and settled for the comfortable routine of my regular job.
Then I had my first child. Becoming a father opened my eyes and I started to think about what kind of example I wanted to set for my children in life. I wanted to teach them that they could do or be anything they dreamed of as long as they were willing make the effort and the sacrifice, meaning a lot of long, hard work. My children helped me rediscover my passion for doing the metal working that I love and they inspired me to reach for my dream.

In 2017, we became a full time metal fabrication shop here in West Michigan. We have had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients and do some unique projects. I treasure my customers and I’m proud of each and every project I have fabricated for them. If it weren’t for my customers, my dream of owning my own business wouldn’t have become a reality. Now that I have my own business, my goal is to pursue perfection in every project, to fabricate metalwork pieces that are of the highest quality in both aesthetic appeal and materials. I take pride in each project and I want the customer to take pride in it as well. I look at business as a snowball effect. I don’t cut corners or slack or overlook the details in any project I undertake. As a result, many of my new customers are referrals from the very satisfied customers I’ve served in the past.

At LMF, we specialize in brand specific site furniture, but we are not limited to just that. We love metal. Any project that you have that requires metal fabrication, we can do it – and do it superbly.
