About Our Sheet Metal Division

The Sheet Metal division of the SMART union – formerly known as the Sheet Metal Workers International Association – currently represents 137,000 members across the country in the sheet metal industry and related trades.

The SMART sheet metal union has an established reputation of providing its partners and customers with a professionally trained workforce that aims to consistently deliver excellent workmanship, training, skill, and integrity. Always adhering to the SMART code of excellence, our union members maintain the values of being honest, trustworthy, productive, and reliable. We have found that this fosters long-lasting business relationships and keeps our quality of work at peak levels.

SMART union construction apprentices and journeymen use the newest equipment and training methods in their day-to-day work. The training SMART union members receive is done through a four-year sheet metal union apprenticeship, which includes extensive on-the-job and classroom training. SMART journeymen continue their advancement of skills and certifications utilizing our world-class training centers to stay up-to-date on changes in technology and work practices.

SMART members are unique in the construction industry as the only trade that designs, manufactures, and installs our own products. These skilled craftsmen take ordinary types of flat metal and turn them into specialized products for various duct and ventilation systems, as well as architectural and specialized metal fabrication. Members of the trade are proud of their special distinction: they not only build, they create. ​
