About Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning in Madera

70th Anniversary of Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning

History of Our Company

When Emmett and Mary Purl started Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning in Madera in 1952 it was called Purl's Sheet Metal Works and was a general sheet metal shop. They started the business with a strong commitment to their workmanship and their customer’s complete satisfaction. Michael Purl joined his father working at Purl's Sheet Metal Works in 1977, and in 1984 the company was incorporated and changed the name to Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning.

Michael Purl became the second generation owner. High standards and an emphasis on customer service exemplified day to day business operations. Michael led Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning into a new era of business that included heating, air conditioning, and indoor air quality products.

In January of 2011 Michael announced his retirement from Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning. After each working under Michael’s leadership for over 25 years, Brian Driggs and Kurt Davidson purchased the company in 2011. Brian and Kurt continue the same business traditions and have made Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning a successful business for over 65 years.

How We’ve Grown

What began as a one man metal shop on West Yosemite in 1952 has significantly expanded over the years. In 1953, we moved the business to North F. Street just north of the Sequoia lumberyard. In 1957 we moved to our newly constructed building on Howard Road to accommodate even more new growth. After 53 years at the Howard Road location it was time for another big change.

Onward & Upwards: Still Growing

In the summer of 2010, Purl's Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning moved to a newly expanded facility on South Schnoor Avenue. We had outgrown our 3300 sq. foot building and moved into a new 31,000 sq. foot location. The new location offers the ability to provide more services for our customers.
