Our Story

Why we truly care about providing top quality metal building solutions. Blacksher Metals was founded in 2010 by John Blacksher, Jr. It was founded in order to do something we love – own a business, enjoy helping people, and help design pre-engineered metal buildings. 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.

We enjoy and appreciate 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. We 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 from our competitors. We hope you give us a call and see if we can help you on your dream building.
