Architectural & Structural Metals Manufacturing Industry Overview

Excerpt from Architectural & Structural Metals Manufacturing Report

Companies in this industry manufacture metal framed windows and doors, sheet metal work, ornamental or architectural metal products, prefabricated metal buildings, and structural metal and metal plate work products.
