Light gauge steel framing company Custom Stud Inc. is celebrating 10 years in business.

Since 2001, the company has evolved from one roll former to a business announcing seven new lines of production.

“We are all very proud of this accomplishment and grateful to our customers and employees who helped us get here” said Missy Albachten, vice president of operations.

Custom Stud was founded by Marty Kiehm. Headquartered in Lakeville, Minn., Kiehm brought his expertise of the steel construction industry to the manufacturing side of the business. “Developing a hard-working, loyal staff from sales through to production has been integral in our success” he said.

The company has been a long-time member of the Steel Stud Manufactures Association and Kiehm is currently serving on the board of directors as its treasurer.
