About Us

Custom Metal Fabrication Since 1882

Here at Coady's Metal Works Limited, we pride ourselves on our honesty and integrity and we firmly believe that you'll see the difference when you choose our company. We've also been family-owned and operated from the start.

Since 1882, a Coady Family blacksmith has been an integral part of the history and heritage of St. John's, Newfoundland.  In the days when tools were made by hand, heated and hammered at the fire, and milk was delivered to your door by horse and wagon, the blacksmith's forge was the heart of industry in the city. Over the last century and then some, many a child has watched from the doorway, wide-eyed at the flames and the sound of the hammer.

These days the horseshoes have all but disappeared and modern welding and metal fabrication is the primary focus of our business, but our fire is still burning as we sharpen picks and digging bars or fashion a unique piece of art. There are still some things that cannot be done any other way. Our business is a fascinating blend of the old and the new.

Visitors to our shop are often full of questions about the history of the business and if Ron Coady is on the premises, there's always a story to be told!

We may not be related, but you’ll feel like we’re family.

We believe no job is too small here at Coady's Metal Works Ltd. Whether you need something replaced or repaired, the significance of the work should be up to the customer and not to us. We take pride in repairing things that otherwise could cost double or triple the price to replace. Or perhaps it's something that cannot be replaced at all because of sentimental value. Whatever the case, we will work with you to make sure you are happy with the finished product.

Being a commercial shop and billing an hourly rate, that can sometimes discourage people from even inquiring about repairs they need, big or small. We have adjusted pricing for our smaller repairs and fabrication that is easy on the pocketbook. The reason for this is our experience. Over the years, we have seen it all, repaired or replaced and returned. If it's made of a metal we will do our best to leave you feeling satisfied with our work. Most smaller jobs can be brought to our shop by the customer. If you are unable to transport it here we offer a pickup and delivery service for a small fee.

Just give our shop a call or send an email and we will be happy to discuss with you whatever it is you need done.

​We still prefer building relationships and interacting with our clients, even for just a hello. That's something that hasn't changed since day one.​
