For more than 50 years, Schneider Simpson Sheet Metal and Blower Company has been meeting custom sheet metal needs throughout the greater Puget Sound area. Formed by Elmer Schneider as Schneider Sheet Metal in 1946, the company first operated from the heart of Tacoma industrial district on Tacoma Avenue South, near the library, before moving in 1954 to its current location at 1551 South Tacoma Way.

Schneider, a sheet metal worker at a local shipyard, earned the nickname "Yump" because he jumped over benches instead of walking around them. He applied the same enthusiasm to his growing business, and by 1951 he brought on two partners, Robert Simpson and Lynden Allbaugh, and changed the company name. All three owner-operators devoted their lives to building a respected shop that originally specialized in blowpipe work for the wood industry. Over the years, as the demand for wood-related products declined, the company evolved to become a leader in custom-designed sheet metal projects in stainless steel and aluminum.
