Blacksher Metals was founded in 2010 by my father, John Blacksher, Jr. I joined in 2016 after watching my dad do something he loved - own a business, enjoy helping people, and help design pre-engineered metal buildings. I joined in 2016 and love this experience. We understand that people and businesses are going to spend a lot of money, and we are NOT in the business of just making a buck.
Dad and I love getting to know our customers and want Blacksher Metals to be known for people who care and make sure the customer’s needs are first and foremost. Dad and I understand what Warren Buffett said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently”.
We want people to enjoy their experience with us and we believe that’s what makes us different than our competitors. We hope you give us a call and see if we can help you on your dream building.
