California Panel Systems, LLC

California Sheet Metal's profitability is founded on its ability to construct and fabricate its own sheet metal as well as perform its architectural sheet metal designs for building owners and clients entirely "in house."

Walking the floor of the fabrication shop, workers of all specialties and job types use advanced machinery and technology to ensure that building owners' exact interior and exterior design specifications are met.

 

To add to its artistic and “green building” capabilities, California Sheet Metal has formed an ongoing partnership with Trespa North America, Ltd., enabling them to use the world famous Dutch panels. As noted by Robin and on the company's web site, all Trespa panels must "meet key safety and environmental building standards." Use of Trespa creates added value for many San Diego building owners and firms.

A visit with Vice-President Scott Hollingsworth is enlightening. According to Scott, having everything in house means that California Sheet Metal can effectively reduce costs , savings which are then passed on to customers, that is, San Diego's buildings and owners.

In addition to completion of some the most visually engaging projects in San Diego and around California, California Sheet Metal /Cal Panel Systems are licensed to work in the states of Nevada and Arizona. One featured project in Las Vegas is the famous Trump Tower.

Architectural Sheet Metal paneling manifests as not only visually engaging exteriors, but also railings and balustrades inside enclosed spaces such as elevators, stairwells and lobbies.

The use of artistically-rendered sheet metal provides building occupants and visitors both safety and comfort, while sending a clear, visual message about the tenants.

According to Sheet Metal Workers Training Director Ken LaVigne, employees who associate certain added comfort levels with their company and immediate work area will often be more willing to put in additional time on deadline. You read right : artistic designs and crafted architectural sheet metal will increase your company's productivity!

Of additional value, California Sheet Metal does their own estimating and design for all products.

The company's products conform to evolving green building and LEED standards as well. For example, the high level of recycling content in California Panel Systems' products enables the firm to be green and visually pleasing at the same time.

With an elaborate Sheet Metal Manufacturing Operation, California Panel Systems acts as a supplier to firms in 9 Western States, capable of “putting an  order on a truck right away” and quickly delivering Trespa or other panels to a job site.

For Scott, knowing that the product and its installation is backed by San Diego's trained Sheet Metal Workers Local 206 is key. "Dealing with customers, I need to have complete confidence in the product and it feels good to have the most talented team behind me."

Being able to access and employ the flexible and highly-trained San Diego Sheet Metal Workers work force is key says Scott, as it enables him to ramp up to any order or production demands, especially critical in the current state of flux in a competitive economy where flexibility and agility to different types of work, with different workers, is essential. "If I didn't have these guys, I'd be doing nothing all day but looking for people."
