Metro Walls, New England’s leader in commercial drywall and framing is proud to announce the launch of its Acoustical Ceiling Division. With this new Division, Metro is able to offer quality installations of Acoustical Ceilings, Wood Ceilings, Tectum, Acoustical Wall Panels, and much more to its customers.
“We are excited to offer these additional services to our customers. By offering quality installation and customer service in a wide variety of Acoustical products, we feel we can add significant value to any project. These items really complement our other framing and drywall offerings, and help move us toward a one stop shop.” says Bryan Hussey, EVP of Metro Walls.
Two qualified, experienced industry professionals have been put in place to run this operation. Eli Luicha, Operations Manager & Matt Duguid, Senior Estimator.
Eli Luicha brings with him more than 20 years of experience in the ceiling industry. For the last several years, Eli owned and operated his own ceiling business, often partnering with Metro Walls for Acoustical installations. He started as an apprentice for Wall Tech Systems while in high school, and over the years graduated to running all aspects of work in the ceiling industry. From standard panels to mastering intricate details, Luicha is all “hands-on” in the field and loves what he does.
“I really enjoy the variety of work that I get to do. No day is ever the same. The really fancy details are what I like the most about what I do. To look up and know that I created something that looks so beautiful is really rewarding”, says Luicha.
Luicha is in charge of all field operations, staff and project management for this division.
Metro Walls promoted drywall estimator Matt Duguid to fill the role of Senior Estimator for this division. Duguid has been estimating and managing Drywall and Acoustical projects since 1980, serving with Metro since 2017. His product knowledge, understanding of the industry, and his ability to build relationships makes him a great fit for this role.
“I like interacting with customers, but I’d say that I really love working with numbers, a little obsessively sometimes”, laughs Duguid.
Duguid is responsible for sales, project proposals, budgets and all the paperwork needed to start a ceiling job. When the estimate is complete and the paperwork is done, he passes the job on to Luicha who manages the project and workforce.
“Metro Walls is really evolving into a one-stop shop and it’s exciting to be part of that. Here, we can offer clients framing, drywall, and acoustical ceilings and so much more.”, says Duguid.
Metro Walls is thrilled to have these two industry pros run the Acoustical Ceiling Division and we will provide whatever is needed to build this team’s success.
