Sterling Custom Sheet Metal (SCSM) was founded in the summer of 1983 under a fine oak tree atop pallets and plywood. Sterling Combs, with customer’s orders on hand, a master sheet metal worker, along with 20 plus years of experience under his belt, began the journey of SCSM.
Sterling had just returned from Saudi Arabia after designing, building, and outfitting one of the largest sheet metal facilities at that time in Al Jabul. This facility was fully automated with the best equipment and the dream to air‐condition the Kingdom.
After fulfilling his contract as Operations Manager and quite frankly cooling down most of Arabia, Sterling took his family home.
