"Anything out of metal that you can imagine, we can build it," Keith proudly declares. Lancaster Metalworks is a testament to craftsmanship, innovation, and the indomitable spirit of its founder, whose roots run deep in Effingham County.

For Keith Lancaster and his wife Susan, choosing Effingham County as the home for his metalworking venture was a natural decision. "I grew up here and I've been here all my life," Keith recalls. "I felt like I could have a successful business in Effingham, and it'd be easier for me to get to, and easier for people to work here." His local connections, combined with the outstanding quality of his work, played a pivotal role in building a diverse client base.

Lancaster Metalworks caters to an array of sectors, including aviation, residential, hospitality, and commercial industries.

Whether replicating an item from a photograph or translating a client's vision into a physical masterpiece, the team at Lancaster Metalworks marries precision engineering with a creative edge. Each piece they create tells a story, reflecting the beauty of both form and function.

The essence of Lancaster Metalworks lies not only in their artistic craftsmanship but also in the family-like atmosphere cultivated within the company. Keith and his wife Susan, who joined the business after retiring from the Effingham County School District in 2015, have created a workspace where employees are treated with respect and trust, which has helped retain workers over the years. Several team members joined Lancaster Metalworks after completing the welding program at Savannah Technical College, and they continue to receive on-the-job training in the art of fabrication, where they learn to bend, shape, and cut metals with precision.

With an impressive 75,000 square feet of warehouse space, Lancaster Metalworks goes beyond welding and shaping metals. They have in-house sandblasting and powder coating facilities, ensuring that every project is seen through from start to finish. This commitment to perfection in every detail is what sets them apart from the competition, according to Keith. "Our finishing sets us ahead of our competition. It really makes a big difference."

The expertise they have honed in aviation applications also translates seamlessly to the automotive sector, proving that they are well-positioned to ride the wave of future growth. Keith Lancaster's vision and the dedication of his team have created a metalworking haven in Effingham County, a testament to the artistry, precision, and boundless possibilities of steel and other metals.
