Reed's Metals Opens 7th Manufacturing Location In Cross City, Florida

reeds-metals-cross-city-floridaBrookhaven, MS - Reed's Metals has opened its seventh location in Cross City, FL. The 5,000 sq. ft. metal manufacturing facility was formerly Quicken Manufacturing. The new operation will be a one-stop shop for metal roofs, steel buildings and pole barns.

Company President and CEO Bernie Reed, a native of Horseshoe Beach, FL, has roots that stretch across the greater Dixie County area with his Florida residence and his family’s restaurant, Max and Ruby’s.

“The return home couldn’t come at a better time because Floridians affected by Hurricane Irma are needing to rebuild and we can help rebuild with weather-resistant products that can withstand up to 145 mph winds," said Reed. "This is my home and I have every intention to see my hometown thrive like never before.”

The Cross City operation will be overseen by Reed’s Metals partner Lucas Rollins. The facility is currently open for business and a ribbon cutting ceremony is tentatively set for December 13.

"It is always our goal to offer quality products that last a lifetime, but also to affect lives through our giving back efforts," Reed explained. "We recently formed a partnership with Eight Days of Hope, a non-profit organization that provides disaster recovery and rapid response for communities affected by natural disasters. We are excited about our partnerships and our expansion.”

Reed’s Metals has been serving customers since 1998.
