American Fence & Supply Co., Inc. was founded in 1992 and quickly became well known in the industry for providing businesses and residences with outstanding products and customer service.
As our dedication and hard work began to pay off and our name began to spread, we had to limit our services to just commercial, industrial, and high-end residential projects. We have successfully serviced high-end residences, municipalities, hospitals, institutions, schools, factories, architects, and contractors—both public and private—across the country since.
Our experience extends to all facets of fencing including fabrication, construction, maintenance, and repairs of all types. Our quality and workmanship are unsurpassed, and our prices are competitive. We take pride in our commitment to creating a great customer experience.

In 1983, Len DiGrande, founder and CEO of American Fence & Supply Co., Inc. and Metal City Fab, began working as a door-to-door salesman at a well-established fencing company in Detroit, called King Fence & Supply Co., Inc. Quickly developing a passion for sales and interacting with consumers, Len became very successful in this role.
In 1986, Len’s childhood best friend, Marc Rudorf, joined the King Fence team. Marc began a job as a general laborer/fence installer at King Fence, quickly mastering the tools of the trade and eventually moving his way up to foreman.
When the owner of King Fence, Alan Stone, passed away in February of 1992, 27-year old Len set out to continue doing what he loved, aiming to open the doors to a fence company of his own.
Len, honing sales and entrepreneurial skills developed during his time at King Fence, served as the company’s CEO. Marc learned and mastered the estimating process, and remains on the team today as our Senior Commercial Estimator. Gary remained in the field, using his expertise and attention to detail to lead and train crews. Gary also remains on our team today, working as a foreman.
We quickly saw great success working with both residential and commercial clients. Around 2012, due to high demand, we narrowed our services to primarily commercial and industrial projects.
From the start, we designed and produced high quality custom metal fabrications. Working with clients across municipal, hospital, institutional, educational, industrial, commercial, and residential sectors, we found ourselves completing projects far beyond the typical fencing and gates that we had originally been known for.
Around 2006, we began advertising our expertise in custom metalwork under the name American Iron Works.
Demand for the best custom metal fabrication in the industry began to skyrocket. With our sights set on providing customers with a more hands on and personalized experience, we decided to launch our first subsidiary, Metal City Fab, in 2020.
We’re proud to offer our clients the same reputable service and quality craftsmanship that we have for nearly 30 years, paired with an unwavering dedication to a personalized and exceptional customer experience.
