Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
When brothers-in-law John Sherrill and Jeff Reed decided to start a business back in 1996, they had no idea it would grow into one of the largest and most-respected metal roofing manufacturer/distributors in the Southeast, but that’s exactly what Gulf Coast Supply & Manufacturing, LLC, (http://www.GulfCoastSupply.com) has become.
“For 16 years, customers across the Southeast have trusted Gulf Coast Supply in Horseshoe Beach as a manufacturer of premium quality metal roofing,” says Jonathan Sherrill, the company’s vice president. “My dad and uncle built Gulf Coast Supply from scratch based on principles of honesty, customer appreciation, premium products and fair prices.”
And while some other companies have been forced to cut back in these tough economic times, Gulf Coast Supply, which serves Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and the Caribbean, has expanded its product line and opened two new locations:
GCS Alachua – The 7,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 14480 NW US Highway 441, Alachua, FL, 32615 – which is just off Interstate 75, less than 20 miles from the University of Florida in Gainesville – is well-suited to expedite delivery and service to Central Florida, one of the state’s key population centers.
GCS Stuart – A 7,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 8701 SW Old Kansas Ave., in Stuart, FL, 34997, in Martin County, is a perfect fit for the Treasure Coast, whose communities stretch from Hobe Sound and Jupiter in the south to Sebastian in the north and include Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce, and Vero Beach.
As with staff members at its headquarters in Horseshoe Beach, Sherrill said employees at both the new Alachua and Stuart locations are steeped in Gulf Coast Supply’s tradition of customer service and product knowledge, including its newest product – the OceanGuard Aluminum Series line of roofing.
“OceanGuard is attractive, durable and energy-efficient,” says Ray Bowen, Gulf Coast Supply’s Director of Sales and Corporate Development, who has been with the company for 12 years
Bowen’s key points regarding OceanGuard’s durability include:
Setbacks – There is no specific setback requirement regarding distance from breaking surf or salt-water shoreline.
Saltwater – It has a 25-year, anti-corrosion warranty.
Coating – Kynar 500, known for its color retention, offers superior weatherability and resistance to corrosion.
Yet, for all of its inherent advantages, Bowen said OceanGuard is cost-effective as well as being energy-efficient – plus the fact that “Metal has one of the highest wind ratings” is an important attribute with Hurricane Season coming in June. Additional details about OceanGuard can be found online at http://www.GulfCoastSupply.com/product-ocean-guard.html.
According to Sherrill, Gulf Coast Supply has been the metal roofing manufacturer of choice for architects, contractors and homeowners throughout the Southeast.
“Gulf Coast Supply is a leader in manufacturing metal roofing and components, serving all of Florida and Southern Georgia,” he said, adding that, “Gulf Coast provides durable, economic and attractive products for the growing demand of metal roofing.”
But high-quality products are only part of the GCS “Sweet 16” story.
“Everyone in our sales staff is trained and knowledgeable, especially on metal roofing,” Sherrill said. “Big box stores, and even smaller chain stores, have to be familiar with so many different products – and that limits their knowledge on any one of them, especially roofing.”
