RSS Roofing Services & Solutions, a design-build roofing contractor founded 120 years ago in St. Louis, has officially opened its new location in Evansville.
The 7,500-square-foot facility is at 4117 N. St. Joseph Ave., on a 1.3-acre lot. Walt Hatfield, president of MHS Legacy Group, the holding company of RSS, is an Evansville native.
‘With local roots in Evansville, this location was a natural choice as we looked to expand RSS’ capabilities,’ Hatfield said in a news release. ‘As a leader in the roofing industry for more than 120 years, RSS is committed to integrity, safety, reliability and excellent services completing projects of all sizes for industrial plants, government facilities, schools, churches, hospitals, office buildings, shopping centers, banks and more. As an Evansville native, I’m excited about coming home.’
Douglas Fuller, who has worked in the roofing industry since 1988, will be superintendent of the Evansville location. He will work with fellow Evansville resident Bob Hollander, a construction crew member for more than 25 years.
‘Both have exceptional leadership capabilities, and will be instrumental in excelling the company in the market,’ said Joe Lauberth, General Manager of RSS St. Louis, in a news release. ‘Their high level of roofing experience and familiarity with the city of Evansville more than qualifies them for this role. We look forward to their efforts in continuing the impressive growth RSS has seen in recent years.’
RSS recently completed a single ply reroof on more than 3 million square feet spanning across five buildings for the Department of Energy’s Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Kentucky. RSS Evansville are members of the Southwest Indiana Chamber and the Indiana Roofing Contractors Association.
In addition to Evansville and St. Louis, other RSS offices are in Nashville, Tennessee; Columbia, Missouri; and Central Florida.
Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, Chamber staff and ambassadors and other city officials took part in a ribbon cutting for the Evansville location.
