About Us

Who We Are

Our History

Sargent Metal was founded in Anderson, South Carolina in 1975 by J.D. and Donnie Sargent. With very little equipment, the father and son team worked hard to support local textile mills by providing machinery guarding and HVAC ductwork. It was a humble beginning, but they had a lofty goal: to become one of the best fabricators in the Southeast.

Our founders quickly learned that success would require ultimate flexibility, a commitment to continuous learning and improvement, investment in high-quality equipment and technology, and, above all else, superior customer service. The pair strategically added new machinery over the years to expand their capabilities and adapt to emerging industry needs.

Bringing Innovation to Fabrication Through Advanced Manufacturing Processes

Sargent Metal has made strides to continue innovating in different ways throughout the years. From our early adoption of CNC processes to our 80,000 square foot plant expansion, totaling 160,000 square feet of manufacturing space. We’ve invested in our company so that we can have a greater impact on our clients who have remained at the forefront of all that we do.
