The Metallic Products Story

Established in 1962 by Roy Hairston, Metallic Products has served as an industry leader in the design and manufacture of ventilation systems for more than half a century. Metallic Products began as a division of a steel building fabrication company and, at the start, built its ventilation products by hand. Although seemingly simple by today's standards, Hairston's approach revolutionized the industry. Because most metal building manufacturers were accustomed to building their own ventilation accessories, they viewed Metallic Products' services as a way to save both time and money.

Word spread about the company's dedication to quality and attention to detail, and soon Metallic Products was serving some of the industry's largest clients. Even in a small warehouse with crude dies - and with just one shared vent assembly table - the company attracted top talent and committed customers who sustained them through the economic decline of the 1980s.

In 2002, Metallic Products decided it was time to enjoy some added elbow room. A move to a 10-acre tract in northwest Houston - its current home - allowed the company to invest in cutting-edge technology and design equipment to create top-notch products at competitive prices. Today, while Metallic Products is internationally known for ridge ventilators, it offers a host of related products, including roof curbs, wall louvers and personnel door canopies.

Metallic Products takes pride in providing quality, cost-effective ventilation products, outstanding customer service and shortened lead times to its friends and customers. And the company looks forward to doing so for years to come. That's work that flows.
