With a history through economic booms and too many recessions, this steady and understated approach continues to grow the Reidy Metal business and stand the test of time.
After 20 years in metal restoration, expanding the Midwest market, and executive VP in Chicago, in 1978 Jerry Reidy was ready to utilize this background for his own company, Reidy Metal Services, Inc. Come 1983, a building boom was happening in Denver, Colorado where Jerry realized his company’s headquarters belonged. Denver’s growth spurt in the 80’s saw downtown office space with an astounding 18% annual growth rate from 1980-1988. Reidy was smart to keep prices low with the quality and service that building owners came to appreciate. Each year they would add new buildings with existing buildings, which, over time grew their incredible market share to what it is today.
Jump forward to today and Jerry’s daughter Kelly Reidy continues down the same path operating the company. They realize that while reputation is something built over time, you don’t rest on it. So Reidy continues with the philosophy of good pricing for a superior quality of work. Kelly Reidy also adds a new focus on green processes through recycling, lowering carbon emissions, decreasing VOC’s, all helping buildings achieve LEED certification.
and ongoing training are all part of our commitment to the care
of, and responsibility for, our environment.”
Everything done at Reidy Metal is done with the safety of our employees and customers in mind. More than that, we keep the care and safety of our planet in mind. In working with suppliers like Nikolas Lacquers who manufacture state-of-the-art products, Reidy uses water-soluble strippers and lacquers wherever possible and ALWAYS in locations such as elevator cabs. The products are safer and the buildings and surroundings are left cleaner. Through years of experience and the development of new products and processes, Reidy Metal provides the highest quality of service with the greatest commitment to our environment.
