Reed's Metals PEMB History
Reed’s Metals was founded by Bernard “Bernie” T. Reed in 1998, operating from a portable shed in Lawrence County, Mississippi. Headquartered in Brookhaven, MS, Reed’s Metals has set the industry standard for quality products and quality service. Through hard work and dedication to delivering an exceptional customer experience, the company has grown into one of the South’s leaders in metal roofing and pre-engineered metal buildings.
On August 10, 2020, Reed’s Metals took a major step and announced a merger with Oakland Metal Buildings. Located in Florence, AL, Oakland Metal Buildings has been providing building solutions for a complete range of end uses since 1962. State-of-the-art technology are utilized to provide quick, accurate pricing and design of custom building projects and mini-storage facilities.
The combined company will go by the name of Reed’s Metals.

We also remain an MBMA (Metal Building Manufacturers Association) member.

Benefits of Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings
Reed’s Metal Buildings are custom-engineered, high-quality metal building systems utilized in a variety of applications including industrial, warehouse, commercial, institutional, recreational, and many other applications. As a member of MBMA, our manufacturing and engineering policies, practices, and procedures assure the structural integrity and quality of our metal buildings.
Metal building systems have become a popular and cost-efficient building solution among architects and building owners. The design possibilities are virtually endless. Steel is the strongest and most cost-efficient construction available. Metal buildings offer clear advantages compared to conventional construction:
- Metal buildings are cost-effective and cost less than conventional construction (up to 30% less). Our metal buildings are fabricated in IAS accredited plants so you can be confident of the quality and code compliance. Metal buildings are low maintenance and extremely durable. With 25-year galvalume panel finish warranties and 45-year painted panel finish warranties you can rest assured of longevity.
- Metal buildings are easy to erect and go up fast. Our process can reduce the time to design, produce, and fabricate your building. The result is “lower in-place costs” and provides for a quicker occupancy.
- Metal buildings are versatile which lends to a wide variety of possibilities. Architects like the fact that metal buildings offer flexibility of design. Not all metal buildings have to look like a “metal building”. Get all the benefits of a metal building but add a masonry wainscot, utilize brick or a stucco wall system, or add a parapet.
- Metal buildings can be designed to be easily added onto. Need a warehouse with the ability to add on to as you grow? No problem, we will just design the endwall or sidewall for a future expansion.
