Fulton Block Builders fundraising campaign strong for 2021

John Sharkey III, Barb Sharkey and John Sharkey IV (not pictured), owners of Universal Properties and Universal Metal Works, have pledged strong support to the Fulton Block Builders.

FULTON — Universal Metal Works and Universal Properties launched the first business support for the Fulton Block Builder (FBB) grass-roots revitalization project in 2017 and have continued with support each year since. The Sharkey’s were impressed to learn that there has been $2 million invested by residents since FBB began.

John Sharkey III said, “Each year brings more inspiration and makes the city of Fulton a great place to do business. I am happy to see this kind of excitement in the city and am pleased to support further growth.”

John IV said, “Fulton has many positive attributes for living and doing business, it’s impressive to see a program like this take off in such a strong way and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Universal Metal Works is a leading metal fabrication facility, with knowledgeable trained staff that have over 300 years of combined fabrication experience. Universal Metal Works specializes in design and engineering assembly. They stand behind quality, strength, and reliability to get any job done with craftsmanship. The Sharkey’s are all active members in the community.
