About Us

Leonard Howard

The Formetal Company began marketing Cold Formed Light Gauge Steel Framing in 1959 representing two of the largest metal framing manufactures of the time. Serving the Southeastern United States Formetal Co and its founder Leonard Howard quickly became known as the company to source cold formed metal framing for both quality and pricing.

In 1960 Formetal opened their first warehouse to provide faster deliveries and quick turnaround on specialty orders in the growing South East markets.

Continued commercial construction growth allowed Formetal in 1981 to begin manufacturing their own cold formed metal framing products.

Today, operating from our headquarters in Forest Park, GA we distribute a complete line of structural and dry wall metal framing and accessories.

Our founder had a vision to provide superior metal framing products with exceptional service direct to the dry wall contractor and this is what Formetal continues to do today.

In 2014 new management joined Formetal to transition the company in todays fast paced technology driven industry.

Formetal meets or exceeds the standards of all the Cold Formed industry associations and participates in LEED certification as well as the “Georgia Peach Points” program.

Formetal specializes in custom lengths of stud and track up to 40 feet in length! Quick turnaround and fast delivery on our fleet of trucks allows us to exceed your expectations.
