About the Company History
The Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, Inc began in 1979. What started as a dream soon became a reality when Metalcrafters was asked to build a prototype vehicle for a major OEM. The success of this project was the first of many more to come.

Founder, John Gaffoglio, was born and raised in Argentina. He diligently practiced the art of metal crafting by hand and later taught his eldest sons, George and Ruben, how to master this art. He then decided to bring their talent to America. Today, Metalcrafters is world renowned for their signature quality in manufacturing prototype vehicles of the future.
