Our History

Suffolk Sheet Metal, Inc. originated some 80 years ago as a sheet metal fabrication company. The name and location are still the same but the company has changed it’s operation.

In March 1970, Cola Cobb purchased the business and changed the operation to heating, air conditioning and electrical installation and service. In 1991, Cola Cobb’s son Ray joined the company. Together they provide heating and cooling equipment of various types: gas, oil, electric baseboard, air-to-air, geothermal and dual fuel equipment are some of the different systems available.

In addition to heating and cooling systems, Suffolk Sheet Metal provides electrical service installations, upgrades and repair. Additional features include humidifiers, electronic air cleaners, gas fireplace logs, generators and many other services to provide efficient comfort at home and work.

Suffolk Sheet Metal is a licensed Class A contractor in Virginia and North Carolina in both mechanical and electrical. Suffolk Sheet Metal is a member of the Better Business Bureau and the Qualified Gas Contractors Association. We are a drug free workplace.

Suffolk Sheet Metal’s service technicians are well trained, certified personnel that are involved in continuing education programs to keep abreast of the most current industry information available. Suffolk Sheet Metal offers continuing education to all employees allowing them to be current in their area of service.

For 47 years we have been serving our community and the surrounding areas not only through work at Suffolk Sheet Metal but with various non-profit organizations as well.
