Melting Point Metalworks (MPM) is a metal fabrication shop dedicated to delighting customers with quality metal products while providing MPM stakeholders with a creative outlet, stable work, fulfilling effort of time and lucrative investment of resources.


Melting Point Metalworks was started by a pair of friends in Brownsburg, Indiana. Josh Cleveland and Jamie Schmiedicke both held corporate jobs that paid the bills, but at the end of each day, they were left with no energy for family, personal growth, creativity, or fun.  Coming from different backgrounds, training, and experience, Josh and Jamie discovered a common desire to get away from the rat race and back to family, hard work, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

Relying on Josh’s wide-ranging metalwork experience and Jamie’s technical background and structured approach, Melting Point Metalworks has a “can-do” attitude and finds that no job is too big or too small as they work with clients to deliver unique and custom solutions to fit their needs.  The business works hard to uphold a reputation for quality work, satisfied customers, and commitment to community.

Josh and Jaime's passion for this business came from two unique places, so it was their friendship that allowed them to discover their love for such a unique industry. 


Josh spent time in the racing, aerospace, and manufacturing industries, continuing to hone his skills, absorb as much knowledge as possible, and accumulate almost 20 years of experience.  

For Jaime, when something needed repair, he loved using his father's tools to figure out how to do it. He enjoyed tinkering with toys, cameras, bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles, and cars.


Melting Point Metalworks is a fantastic opportunity for them to get back to working with their hands, learning new skills, and working with a purpose to create products that bring joy to others.
