with many successful companies, the journey on the road to excellence
started years, even decades before. Midwest Ducts beginnings
trace back to WWII and Herbert R. Gibson, who started his sheet
metal career repairing the wings of B29 bombers from a small sheet
metal shop in the South Pacific.
In the 1950s, his education in the sheet metal manufacturing
business came from Standard Metal Products, the industry leader
at that time. He refined his knowledge and expertise in the
industry with an 11 year affiliation with Champion Furnace Pipe
