More than 50 years of experience
A passion for quality
EleMETAL Fabrication and Machine was founded by Pete Dahlhauser as Pete’s Custom Metal, Inc. in 1964. Pete was passionate about providing the highest quality sheet metal products at fair prices. His legacy of superior workmanship lives on in the business today.
In 1984, Pete’s son Jack Dahlhauser was promoted to manager, and Ken Burbach was promoted to foreman. Together, they expanded on the great work Pete’s Custom Metal was known for.
Ken took over the day-to-day operation of the business in 2007. In 2011, Jack retired, so the business was acquired by another family member and became NTR Custom Metals LLC. Ken was promoted to Vice President to oversee the complete operation of the business.
On the leading edge
Recently, major investments in new equipment are keeping the company on the leading edge. These improvements include a new Cincinnati shear, Cincinnati press brake, Geka ironworker, Fryer CNC Mill, Fryer CNC lathe, and three new Toyota forklifts. Two building additions have brought the facility to its current size of 15,000 square feet.
In 2015, Andrew Stamp joined the team to assume management and operation duties.
On January 1st, 2016, the business was rebranded to EleMETAL Fabrication and Machine. Andrew Stamp became managing partner in March of 2019.
Andrew holds a bachelor’s degree in manufacturing engineering from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He utilizes his 18 years of manufacturing and engineering experience to lead the company as managing partner.
