Precision Walls, a specialty contractor for commercial drywall and exterior wall and truss systems, announced that its manufacturing division will operate as a separate entity, Advanced Exterior Systems (AES).

The manufacturing division designs, engineers, fabricates and installs panelized wall systems, light-gauge metal trusses, aluminum composite panel systems, architectural cladding systems and ceramic rain-screen wall systems. With more than 20 years of experience, this division has completed thousands of jobs throughout the Southeast.

“Our manufacturing group has experienced dramatic growth in recent years,” said Brian C. Allen, president of Precision Walls. “With the distinct differences that exist between our construction and manufacturing operations, the time has come to establish this group as a separate entity so that it may better capitalize on future opportunities. We’re confident this dedicated focus on the manufacturing process and end-use applications will enable AES to better serve its customers.”

The new division will be led by John T. Christine, chief operating officer. His management team will consist of Mark Raynor, vice president of Architectural Cladding Systems; Jerry Baker, vice president of Panelized Wall Systems; and Bill Canipe, vice president of Truss Systems. AES will remain in its existing 65,000-square-foot facility in Raleigh, N.C.

Precision Walls will continue to market, sell and install all panel and truss products that are offered by AES.

Founded in 1964, Precision Walls is one of the largest specialty contractors in the Southeast with eight locations.
