Rapids Sheet Metal Works History

Heating and Cooling for Over a Century

A lot has changed since 1915 but one thing that won't change is Rapids Sheet Metal's good old fashioned service!

Rapids Sheet Metal was founded in 1915 by Biemler, Schmidt and Bennet. In 1922 Matt D. Schill began working part-time, and in 1929 purchased the business with Dan Lester. Don and Bob Schill, Matt's sons, purchased Dan Lester's share of the operation in 1946 after his retirement. Don and Bob purchased the operation from their father. Currently, Rob and Mike Schill operate the business their grandfather began three quarters of a century ago. Rapids Sheet Metal currently employs 18 people from the area. There is something reassuring about a business that has been passed down through the years from father to son. There are so few of these institutions left today in an era of corporate monopoly. At Rapids Sheet Metal Heating and Cooling, that hometown family dedication to service still endures, just as it has for more than the last 100 years!
