Our History

A Proud Family Tradition Since 1978

Serving Buffalo and Western New York Manufacturers for Over 30 Years!

Gary Schade learned the welding and metal fabrication trades as an apprentice working under his father.   He began L & S Metals in 1978, and as the business grew he passed his skills on to his own children, along with a strong emphasis on the importance of hard work and quality customer service.   L & S earned a solid reputation within the local manufacturing community, and its steady growth resulted in two moves:   First to the historic Wurlitzer Building on Niagara Falls Boulevard, and then in 1995 to its current location on Witmer Road.   Today L & S Metals operates two facilities with over 50,000 square feet of combined office, production and warehouse space.
