On January 1, 2002, MD Sheet Metal, Inc. was formed by Matt Davis. After several years of being a building trades journeyman through Local 66 Sheet Metal Workers Union, he decided it was time to venture out on his own. From January until June 2002, he was MD Sheet Metal's only employee. After being awarded several small flashing projects, it became necessary to hire some help. In June of 2002, MD Sheet Metal signed a contract with Local 66 Sheet Metal Workers Union and he hired our second employee.
By the end of the year, the largest project they had completed was slightly above $35,000 and the company did $192,000 in sales. Over the following years, MD Sheet Metal expanded very rapidly. Most of the General Contractors they had done work with were requesting them to bid more of their projects. Contractors appreciated the integrity, communication and quality of work that they provided. They also respected the fact that Matt could be found more on the job site than in the office. This showed them that commitment to a successful project came from the top down.
In February 2005 Michelle Davis left her successful sales career to join MD Sheet Metal as Controller and Vice President. She was excited about the opportunity to work with Matt and share his vision for the company.
In November 2005, they invested most of their profits into opening a fabrication shop. They saw this as another opportunity to better serve their customers and have complete control of how fast material could be supplied to their installers. This would also allow them to keep better schedules with the contractors and take one more link out of the chain. During the course of 2006, MD Sheet Metal had several notable accomplishments. They did over $3.5 million in sales, completed their first $1,000,000 project, became signatory to the Pacific Northwest Regional Carpenter's Union, promoted Nick Poe to their Production Manager and purchased a custom 7" gutter machine to produce a large commercial gutter. Two years later, MD Sheet Metal was doing much more than installing architectural sheet metal. They changed their name to MD Exteriors and began fabricating material to be installed by our carpenters, roofers and sheet metal tradesmen.
In 2016, MD Exteriors had another monumental year. One of their accomplishments was completing the majority of a $3.5 million project in just 4 months. This was equivalent to their entire sales for 2005! They had also completed well over $50 million since inception. In addition, Matt decided to step away from the day-to-day operations of the company and promoted Nick Poe to President. Nick has worked alongside Matt for 15 years years and has proven that he can lead the company to success.
