CMG Expands into Nashville

Coated Metals Group (CMG) has expanded its operations by opening a new branch facility in the Nashville-Metro area. General Manager, Joe Ley, will lead the team at this new location. 

A CMG team member since 2015, Joe most-recently served as Production Manager for CMG’s Indianapolis production facility.  This experience, coupled with his previous account representative history, provides the leadership and background that a dynamic market demands. 

Joe feels the timing of opening the Nashville location is the right move for CMG.  He states, “Expansion into the Nashville market presents a remarkable opportunity for Coated Metals Group. We have already developed some great partnerships within the past couple of years.  Opening a location within a rapidly growing market like Nashville will allow us to service our existing customer base even better, develop new relationships within the market, and continue to expand our brand throughout the region.” 

Company President Gary Woodward adds, “We are thrilled to bring the CMG brand to the Tennessee market and are confident that we will earn the reputation for providing the same exceptional level of customer service to the region that has become our trademark.”

CMG’s new facility will be fully-stocked with both coil and sheet goods, thereby reducing lead times and allowing for quick turnaround of custom requests.  Route truck delivery is currently available to the greater Nashville metro area.

The 2019 IRE Contributes to Nashville with 10th Annual Community Service Day

Roofing professionals participating in the 2019 International Roofing Expo (IRE) are given the opportunity to give back to the Nashville community by participating in Community Service Day, the show’s home repair and revitalization project. 

The 10thAnnual Community Service Day will take place on Sunday, February 10, from 7:30 am – 3:00 pm. Volunteers and sponsors will work together to help rebuild the homes of families that are elderly, disabled or financially unable to support the renovation. This year the group will also perform work on a local Boys and Girls Club. 

“We are going into our 10thyear of the Community Service Day and I can definitely say that this is my favorite part of my job. I love giving back to others and it’s clear that the Roofing Industry feels the same way. I am proud to be part of this industry. Our homeowners are always so grateful for the assistance they receive. We are very thankful for our supporters who make this day possible” said Brandi McElhaney, Senior Conference Manager.

Skilled and unskilled volunteers are needed to help with the renovations. Skilled volunteers, made up of construction professionals, perform a variety of construction disciplines including roofing, interior/exterior painting, flooring, and minor carpentry. Unskilled volunteers help with set up, cleanup, and other miscellaneous projects. The International Roofing Expo is partnering with Rebuilding Together Nashville, a non-profit, volunteer-based program that repairs and rehabilitates homes and non-profit community facilities.

Community Service Day is made possible by the support of our sponsors. Sika Sarnafil has been the primary sponsor for ten years. 

Additional sponsors include:

  • Safety Equipment: Carlisle Construction Materials
  • Breakfast: ICP Building Solutions Group 
  • Lunch: OMG Roofing Products
  • Shuttle: Damato Enterprises 
  • Roofing Labor and Material: Don Kennedy Roofing Co.
  • Tool Sponsor: Centimark 

Participants can register for this event at the same time they register to attend the show. There is a $25 fee that includes transportation, beverages and snacks. Tax-deductible monetary donations can also be made during registration. 

The 2019 International Roofing Expo will be held February 11-13, at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee USA, offering roofing contractors of all sizes and specialties a comprehensive preview of the entire roofing construction and maintenance industry.
