Valley Sheet Metal Works was founded in 1932 by Gustave Taffe. The company enjoyed a reputation for quality work, and its resulting success allowed Gus and his son-in-law to purchase the Reilly-Duerr Tank Company in 1950. This acquisition added tank design and construction to the company's abilities, and for increased capacity, they moved to the present location in Reading, Ohio. In 1955, the business incorporated, and its name was changed to Valley Metal Works.

Today Valley Metal Works is owned by Jim Steinbeck, Fred Hoerst and Joe Rings, and has 34 employees.

With over 75 years of experience and expertise in metalworking practices and processes, VMW specializes in sheet and plate rolling. Valley Metal Works prides itself in superior customer service, attention to detail and quality, and meeting delivery requirements. Modern technology and equipment like the laser and press brakes have transformed VMW’s methods, but the commitment to highest-quality work has remained the same.
