Business owner since inception of the company, Dale Gronewold’s knowledge of sheet metal construction standards and solutions is extensive. A product of the sheet metal apprenticeship program, Dale soon advanced to journeyman, working on large projects such as Westside Mall in West Los Angeles and Burbank Mall, running crews of over 20 individuals.
He and his partner soon established Emerald Metal Products in 1991 where he expanded his responsibilities to include estimating, project and material management, drafting and personnel management. He holds a C-43 contractor’s license and is certified in welding, Trespa©, Kingspan©, and Zip Rib panel installation. Additionally, compliance with SMACNA and OSHPD regulations is of utmost importance and he utilizes his expertise in the field to find creative and unconventional solutions to design issues.
In his free time, along with his wife and four children, Dale enjoys watersports and driving his Hallett boat at the river.
Originally, with a background in cabinet making, Scott Gronewold joined Emerald Metal Products – his family’s business – in 1994. He developed his sheet metal skills in the field and quickly rose to the position of Field Supertintendent, supervising crews on such jobs as Northridge Hospital (Acrovyn and sheet metal), St. John Eudes (copper roofs and sheet metal) and Stark Villa (metal panels).
He became Vice President and joint owner of the company in 2006 upon the retirement of one previous owner. At that time, he transitioned from field work into estimating and project management. He applies his first hand knowledge of sheet metal installation and techniques, as well as installation of Acrovyn/wall protection, expansion joint, louvers, and skylights to the projects he bids and subsequently runs. Scott is also the company's Safety Director and is OSHA certified.
During his free time along with his family, Scott Gronewold enjoys racing motorcycles.
