In 1910 David Hyde, the son of Irish immigrants, started a heating and sheet metal business in the garage of his North St. Louis home. He established a tradition of craftsmanship and service that is carried on today by his grandson, James B. Hyde Jr. and great-grandson Peter Hyde.
From the garage in North St. Louis, Hyde Sheet Metal grew and expanded into a small building on Easton Avenue, to the 4800 block of Page Avenue in 1927 and to Hanley Industrial Court in 1966. The company moved to its present location on Kahlmeyer Drive in 1997.
Originally established as a heating contractor installing residential coal-fired furnaces, Hyde Sheet Metal expanded into commercial construction around 1918. The company gradually phased out its heating division and moved exclusively into providing architectural sheet metal services in the 1950s.
