our history


Central Cal Metals is a 3rd generation family business located in Fresno, CA.

since 1950


Originally founded in the 1950’s Central Cal Metals focused on light sheet metal and air conditioning ductwork.  The first generation primarily worked with small business.  Helping to develop a finished product that could be sold to end user.  This involved tool and die, specialty equipment and painting.  Lots of time and on-site customizing was used to create these specialty parts. The second generation took Central Cal Metals into job shop manufacturing.   Punching and plasma cutting was added with the introduction of the first tape reading machines, then actual computer programing.  As technology advanced CO2 laser cutting became Central Cal Metals specialty. With the third generation, we’ve moved Central Cal Metals into modern, sophisticated cutting with automation. More products can be manufactured in a more timely manner with less overhead, and this results in a winning solution for our customers.

Our future looks bright


Central Cal Metals has evolved into a company that primarily focuses on cutting, forming and flattening for variety industries and customers.  Waterjet cutting was introduced so a verity of materials and thickness can currently be cut.  Once known for having a significant amount of C02 lasers under one roof, Central Cal Metals has taken advantage of newer technology and now operates only Fiber Lasers.  To supplement the cutting process edge rounding, finishing, and flattening are recently added services.
