Gary L. Mickley started by purchasing a welder and operated in a two-car garage in Huntington, Indiana doing all sorts of odd jobs. It was his desire to be self-employed
Gary formed a partnership with John Stoffel, who worked in the business part time, and they move to 433 N. Broadway manufacturing and selling two-wheeled trucks and welding cylinder carts. M&S Sheet Metal Co. had begun.
Gary and John took a third partner William L. Shaffer and incorporated.
Two brothers, Paul & Tom Partee bought stock in the company and M&S started manufacturing gasoline pumps for the Partee Company. John Stoffel sold out that same year.
Three acres were purchased in a new industrial park on the northwest side of Huntington and a building was erected at 5 Commercial Road, our current location.
Three stockholders had sold out and Gary L. Mickley owned the company solely. The Mickley family continues to own and operate M&S today.
Over the years there have been three major and 10 other smaller additions to the building with the most recent being a powder coating paint line.
Since 1968, M&S has been and continues today to be a family-owned company, now going into its second generation. We extend that personal care and quality to every customer and every job. Our passion and commitment is strong, and evident in all the work done at M&S.
