A long history of marine success!
The Metal Craft Company began in Cleveland, Ohio in 1932 by two German metal fabricators and engineers. In the mid-1950s a new plant was built in Chardon, Ohio to accommodate the growing business. Manufacturing of commercial docks began with the first shipments to Camp Mission Meadows on Chautauqua Lake, NY. The docks at Camp Mission Meadows are in good condition and still in use today! The dock design rapidly evolved to meet the needs for truss frame docks in the 1970s on Lake Cumberland, Kentucky. All three of the original frame dock systems are still in use today on Lake Cumberland including a small addition in the spring of 2018. Metal Craft Docks also has a long history in saltwater applications from Maine to Florida. A 67 slip marina installed at Everglades City, FL in 1979 is still going strong.
MC Docks, LLC was formed during the sale of Metal Craft Docks, Inc. in 2011. Today, Metal Craft Docks designs and manufactures aluminum boat docks, boat and jet ski lifts, dock gangways, and aluminum stair systems in our Painesville, Ohio facility. We work through a network of factory-authorized dealers to ensure your system is designed and installed to last for decades. Without our dealer’s knowledge and expertise, it would be challenging for Metal Craft to offer local, superior service in addition to our quality products.
Metal Craft Docks is a family-owned and operated business priding ourselves on exceptional quality, design, and outstanding customer service. We tell our customers “If you have had a great experience buying Metal Craft please tell your friends; if you haven’t, please tell us”! We have designed and manufactured thousands of dock systems over the last 80 plus years and we look forward to designing yours.
