Our Story

We’ve been driving innovation since the beginning.

 

Seeking Challenges

When Daniel Streimer returned home to Portland from WWII, he was ready to set out on his own. A trained sheet metal mechanic, skilled craftsman, and natural leader, Daniel had a knack for problem solving and the tenacity to tackle difficult projects. Always up for hard work and a challenge, Daniel and his wife, Betty, founded Streimer Sheet Metal Works in 1946.

 

Putting Customers First

Their mission was simple: treat customers like royalty, be honest, solve problems, be dependable, and charge a fair price. Customers responded. By 1958, Streimer Sheet Metal Works was booming, and we opened a brand-new facility on North Knott Street in North Portland. Today, Streimer employs over 200 people.

Problem Solvers

First Michael and then his brother Frederick Streimer took over the company’s steering wheel from their father Daniel Streimer. Now Steven Streimer is serving as the company's 4th President. Together with his father Frederick as Chairman of the Board and Secretary/Treasurer, they continue Daniel’s legacy of reliability and innovation.

The Road Ahead

With more than 70 years of experience and the same can-do attitude, we carry forward our time-tested traditions: quietly accomplish what initially seems impossible, then set our eyes on the next challenge.
