Westco Metalcraft, Inc. was founded in 1953 by Bjarne H. Westergaard. Mr. Westergaard was a skilled toolmaker who immigrated to the United States from Denmark in 1921.

Mr. Westergaard led the prototype department at Ford Motor Company. While there he developed a vision for an independent firm that could provide technical skills and develop prototype and low volume stampings for a variety of manufactured products. He believed that a small firm with a high degree of technical expertise could provide customers with personal attention, quick turn around, and flexibility at an affordable price.

Today Mr. Westergaard’s family continues to turn his vision into reality. Employees at Westco Metalcraft have an average of 28 years in the industry. We are still family owned, we still take time with our customers, and we still help our customers turn visions into reality every day.

Westco Metalcraft, Inc. offers over a half-century of services to the automotive, aerospace, agricultural, appliance, marine, and robotics industries, as well as those innovative individuals whose unique concepts necessitate tangible experimental sample(s), in the form of sheet metal prototype stampings and/or assemblies.

Family-owned and operated since our founding, Westco has built a reputation not only on quality and ability, but on customer service. Our highly skilled personnel work closely with clients throught concept, design and manufacturing phases of a project to ensure requirements are met or exceeded. Great emphasis is placed on quality control, and we will provide our Quality Manual upon request.
