NOVEMBER 2018 – This month, East Coast Metal Systems (ECMS) is highlighting the Jackson Flayler Company as the Representative of the Month. The Jackson-Flayler Company are independent ECMS sales representatives based out of Orlando, FL.
The business was created by Pam Jackson in 1997 and was geared toward “specialty products.” In 1998, Jim Flayler was added to the team. His background in project management strengthened the project management and estimating side of the business. In 1999, Nancy Capobianco was added to the company in an accounting role, which provided the company with the well-rounded workforce it needed to propel forward. Today, the company is still a small representative firm of only six employees but has a large footprint throughout the industry.
Pam and Jim began working with ECMS about a year ago. They had the opportunity to work with various exterior cladding solutions in the past, but not metal. “We definitely see more metal projects today than ever before,” said Pam. “You have to grow and develop with the times, and these new designers and architects represent a whole new aesthetic appeal.” Now that Jackson-Flayler is working with ECMS, they feel that a door has been opened into the metal industry. “You plant seeds to watch the garden grow. We have planted many seeds and spent time cultivating in the past few months. The garden is growing; keep watching and we will be harvesting soon,” said Pam.
Throughout their 21 years of business, Jackson-Flayler has been involved with many unique projects. One of their most memorable projects was the Amway Center Magic Arena in Orlando, Florida. In addition, their largest project to date is the Tampa International Airport in Tampa, Florida, which was just recently completed.
“Pam and Jim are well-connected in the Florida market, and it shows. Although they haven’t been with ECMS long, they have already developed metal wall panel relationships that will benefit us for a long time,” said ECMS Director of Sales Bob Nixon.
“Everyone at ECMS is so eager and willing to help, and they always have a ‘team’ attitude,” Pam added.
