Our Story as Your Trusted Florida Metal Roofing Supplier
1967 – THE BEGINNING
Bob Sizemore and Bill Kuhn began a general contracting business, building commercial spaces and homes In the 1st Coast and Palm Coast area. The concept was to give the very best product available for a fair price; still a core concept in our business today. Our name has evolved over the years, but our values and commitment remains the same as when bill and Bob started their dream many years ago.
1998 – THE ENLIGHTENING
After 31 years of building structures, many with metal roofing, the two decided that metal roofing was the future. Metal roofing provided long-term protection at a reasonable price—exactly what they believed in. The two men closed their very successful contracting business and started selling only metal roofing.
2006 – EXPANSION
After the hurricanes of 2004 and 2005, it was time to pass the torch to a staff that maintained the core values of the founders. Continued growth required B&B Wholesale Metals (1st Coast Metal Roofing Supply) to relocate to a new 3-acre facility on State Road 207 in East Palatka, Florida. This central location allowed for more efficient service to the many valued customers that came to trust the business over the years.
2010 – CHANGES IN THE INDUSTRY
The metal roofing industry becomes more mainstream, and many contractors become aware of the great value in metal roofing. The increased demand necessitated faster service. We purchased a state-of-the-art 21 ft CNC folder to make all the trims and flashings quickly and efficiently. Also, we invested in a CAD drafting system, which provides our customers with computer-generated blueprints of all materials required to complete their project on-site.
2012 – COMPETITION GROWS
The metal roofing industry continues to refine itself, leading to an expansive color wheel for the customer to choose from. Competition grows expediently with the realization that metal roofing is not only a good value, but is also recyclable and saves on cooling costs, making it a “green product.” To help meet these new challenges, a cut-to-length line was purchased, which cuts coils of metal to any desired length.
2013 – DELIVERING THE BEST
In order to keep up with company and industry growth, it was apparent that we needed to enlarge and improve our delivery systems. The decision was made to add tractor trailers to our fleet with a moffet delivery system, which is a specially designed forklift that allows us to deliver panels to almost any location.
2016 – PRODUCING OUR OWN PANELS
We decided changes needed to be made in our business model, so we began producing our own panels on-site. Producing our own panels for the products we sell most will give us the ability to exceed expectations by providing projects even faster. Instead of customers having to wait 2-3 days to get their panels, it is now possible to get it the very same day they order it.
2016 – INTERNET MARKETING GROWS THE BUSINESS
A commitment to service and embracing technology has transformed a 43-year-old, small-town business into a major distributor specializing in a niche market. We developed plans for the new website and began marketing our services online, which has led to continued growth and expansion within the business.
