East Coast Metal Roofing holds grand opening in Oxford
OXFORD, Massachusetts – Many businesses struggled to stay open or retain employees during the pandemic.
But for a roofing company in Central Massachusetts, the opposite was the case.
East Coast Metal Roofing expanded their Oxford location. On Wednesday, they cut a ribbon at their new design center and offered a tour of the facility.
State Representative Joseph McKenna (R-18th Worcester) handed owner Paul Lechiara a citation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives and a proclamation from Gov. Charlie Baker.
The company says the opening of the new facility is the result of their unique business approach.
“We had some challenges. Massachusetts considered construction essential. People need a roof over their heads,” says sales manager Beau Saad. “So we were able to get around a number of different challenges to keep the business going.”
Oxford city leaders, first responders and even former Boston Bruin Rick Middleton attended the grand opening on Wednesday.
