Sid Taylor  founded S.E.T Steel, Inc., in 1989 after leaving a management position with General Motors.  In 2001 S.E.T. expanded to become a full-service provider of metal processing when it purchased Noble Metal Forming and Noble Metal Processing-Midwest and formed a strategic alliance with Noble International Ltd. In January 2001, S.E.T. Steel became SET Enterprises, Inc.

Taylor has been successful in founding and developing companies due to his outstanding leadership style which stresses excellence. This ability to inspire others to success first became apparent while serving as a U.S. Marine in the Vietnam Conflict.


Several of Taylor's businesses are located in the economically challenged Renaissance and Empowerment Zones of the City of Detroit. He hires employees from the surrounding areas and forges relationships with community leaders and residents.



 In 1997, Mr. Taylor founded the Intervale, Cloverdale, Lyndon, Livernois Industrial Park Association (ICLL) with a group of business owners, community leaders, government representatives and residents ready to take action.  In addition Mr. Taylor has established a scholarship program for area high school students, Real Life 101 Scholarship Fund (www.ICLLRealLife.org).


Mr. Taylor shows his commitment to his employees and customers through several programs he established.
