About West Central Manufacturing
West Central Hollow Metal Manufacturing (WCM) is a 35,000 sq. ft. hollow metal fabrication facility located in Rapid City, South Dakota. The company began as the manufacturing component of North Central Supply (NCS) in 1967. NCS thrived for many years marketing manufactured hollow metal products directly to contractors to which they were also supplying other construction products and services. In 2004 NCS sold their manufacturing component and the new owners renamed the company to WCM. The current owner is Ron Christensen who also owns Central Plains Automation in Mitchell, South Dakota.
WCM has been fortunate to retain many of its long-time craftsman and engineers with many having over twenty years of experience in the industry. This along with the vast array of welding procedures and CNC fabrication equipment gives us the tools, knowledge, and credentials to build a wide range of products, from standard offerings to complex custom safety and/or decorative products.
WCM works with a network of distributors throughout the United States. These distributors help WCM provide the service excellence we are known for and help improve and maintain our expectation of customer satisfaction.
West Central Hollow Metal is also proud of its working relationship with architects. Given the versatility that hollow metal products offer, architects have the freedom to design decorative projects that have historically included radius walls, round or shaped windows, and arched entrances to name a few. In addition to the limitless design options architects still achieve the strength, security, and longevity and serviceability that hollow metal has always offered.
West Central Hollow Metal Manufacturing looks forward to supplying hollow metal products to the construction industry for many years to come. To discuss how we can accommodate your hollow metal project needs please contact us at
