Roy Wood is the founder and CEO of Allied Contractors LLC. Located in Manchester, TN.
For over 20 years, he learned the ropes in various construction trades. He was newly married in 1999 and moved from Alabama to Tennessee; he wanted to be established. After watching his father-in-law work remodeling jobs, Roy recognized a few things he could do part-time that would generate additional income. A 1988 S10 blazer served as a means to drive around small neighborhoods and talk with homeowners about small projects that needed to be done. Learning the value of hard work and customer satisfaction, Roy began to build relationships with a broad range of customers who trusted him to get the job done right! With a growing family and the need for insurance, Roy acquired full-time work as an employee for years, which included calling his CDL license and driving a tractor-trailer. However, Roy continued to serve his customers by doing part-time remodel work in the evenings and weekends. After losing his job due to market cuts in July 2012, Roy knew he needed more. He felt the call to pioneer a ministry. In March 2013, he did just that.
Needing a flexible schedule to accommodate this passion of purpose, Roy began to commit to working for himself in the things he had learned over the years. So an exciting new business was born. In 2017, Roy named the company and formalized it as an LLC. What started as a means to minister and care for his family has now grown into a business that employs a dozen people and networks with multiple partnerships—completing jobs from small home projects to the big box stores such as Lowes, Walmart, and many more! Allied Contractors LLC has become a preferred contractor all over the southeast region. Roy enjoys spending time with Amanda, his wife of 24 years, his six children, and three grandchildren. He also enjoys reading, writing, and helping others.
