We insist on positive conduct in all aspects of our business.
 
Our motto is “KISS” Keep it simple, it’s sheet metal! We keep the relationship with our customers and employees a simple and honest one. In actuality the sheet metal and ventilation scope of work is a highly specialized trade scope and requires years of experience, ongoing training, extensive knowledge of engineering, manufacturing and installation. Pricing a sheet metal project is determined on a combination of factors including project conditions, project type, proportion of duct, proportion of fittings, number and sizes of components, seperated by types and gauges of steel, with a combination of wholesale pricing, length, area, weight, and project experience. Values go through a review process in accordance with the specifications to compile a competitive bid. We use computer digitizer and on screen technology to provide accuracy and the best price possible. A competitive quote requires multiple tasks, with several people and is essential to provide the right cost/benefit for the end user - who we will be serving. We stay on top of the competitive and commodity market trends daily to offer the best pricing possible.
 
We manufacture in five dimensions - length, width, depth,time and cost. We have to account for angles, orientation of fittings, restrictions, types of joints, hangers and sealants, collision avoidance, loading and staging. Our scope of work is of utmost importance to the mechanical system as ductwork is the largest component. Clean air is essential to a healthy environment. West Air manufacturers and installs quality period. We care about our reputation. Every employee is taught to care and appreciate building owners who provide our families a livelihood and we will not let them down.
 
Our culture is simple – Positively serve our customers and employees so they feel they made the right decision choosing West Air.
