AW Metals is a premier provider of high-quality stainless steel and aluminum, located just outside of Akron, Ohio in the town of Barberton. Since 1999, they have been offering custom solutions that can be used in many different applications for personal, small business, or commercial use. They are able to cut, shear, or saw metal pieces to their customers’ exact specifications, whether it’s one inch or many feet. AW Metals provides reliable delivery service within a 100-mile radius of Barberton – including Cleveland – although they have clients located all across the United States. They are well-known for their fast turnaround times and exceptional customer service.
Business owner Don Geisler has a background in the trucking and manufacturing industries. As the President of AW Metals, he is able to utilize his combined expertise from these two industries to effectively run his new business. When Mr. Geisler made the decision to purchase a business, he was referred to FNB Small Business Finance from the selling broker. He was put in touch with Business Development Officer Tim Carson, and they began conversations about his business plan and goals. With Tim’s expertise in SBA financing, the SBA 7(a) loan was successfully closed in December 2017.
Don Geisler had this to say about working with Tim Carson:
From our very first meeting, Tim took genuine interest in my business objectives. He vetted opportunities that fit my particular skill set, and I was able to put my trust in him very quickly. He and the team at First National Bank (including Kris Barker at the Hudson branch) were dedicated to helping me accomplish my goals. I would absolutely recommend Tim Carson and FNB Small Business Finance to anyone looking to acquire a business.
Since closing, Don Geisler has been settling into his new role as business owner of AW Metals. As part of the acquisition, Mr. Geisler has expanded by adding a Water Jet saw for precise cutting and increased marketing to provide delivery service all across the United States. We look forward to watching AW Metals grow and succeed for years to come!
