Adam Davidson

Owner :: Engineering, Estimates, Machining, Welding

Adam's love of making things goes back to Legos, Erector Sets and Lincoln logs. Fast forward to college at Texas State University and a degree in Manufacturing Engineering was the obvious choice. Adam was employed as a draftsman at a machine shop during college where his favorite class was foundry. His skills secured him a position with General Motors before graduation. The collapse of the automotive industry temporarily sent him searching for work and he soon became a metallurgist at Forge USA. Adam's metal working experience includes cutting metal, pouring metal, and forming metal. With the forming of Houston Custom Metal Works, he now is able to add his own creativity to those skills and produce parts and projects in his own shop.

When Adam isn't at his shop he can be found attending Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church with his wife, Ellen, and two sons. As a family they enjoy traveling, skiing, hunting and fishing. When his inner speed demon calls, he loves to go to the race track for hot laps or to spectate racing events.

Ryan Wilson

Designer

As HCMW head designer, Ryan is a native Houstonian and a graduate of the University of Houston with a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering. Although, in high school, he did not think this was going to be his initial field of study once he left for college, Ryan found that he really enjoyed taking broken things apart and learning how to improve them and put them back together, then decided that Mechanical Engineering would be the best fit to pursue those goals.
In his free time, he is an avid gun collector who loves camping and driving his 4Runner off road, and cooking for his fiancé, Paige.
