In 1946 the first of the Nash companies took shape as a residential subcontracting paint company. Woodrow (Woody) Wilson Nash and his wife Augusta Nash founded the company and with sons Reggie, Rod and Ken, developed the company away from residential toward commercial projects. Later, in 1968, the company was incorporated and called W.W. Nash & Sons, Inc.
Eventually passed down to all of his children, Reggie, Rod, Ken and Sandra, the companies grew throughout the years. The company were divided in 1988 to better focus on our specialties. Out of that W.W. Nash Construction Company was born. W.W. Nash and Sons, Inc. continued handling painting and paper hanging projects while W.W. Nash Construction Company, Inc. managed fireproofing, fire stopping, asbestos abatement, spray sound insulation, and abrasive blasting.
Today the companies continue to work under the same roof. Recent work has included special projects such as renovating two historical sites; Hayfield Manor (Plantation) in Caroline County and Meadowview Park in Henrico County. At these projects W.W. Nash Construction, Inc. managed the lead abatement and asbestos removal of the historical homes while W.W. Nash & Sons, Inc. handled the interior and exterior painting. Another sizable project was the complete powerwashing and painting of the Oak Hill Shopping Center located on Mechanicsville Turnpike in Richmond. After priming an Elastomeric coating was applied to the exterior of the entire center.
W.W. Nash & Sons, and W.W. Nash Construction Company are two dynamic companies working under the same roof in Richmond, VA, USA. These two companies combined have achieved excellence in commercial painting, wallcovering, fireproofing, and firestopping, just to mention a few.
With Reggie Nash as the point man for Nash & Sons and Ken Nash leading Nash Construction, many business relationships have been formed, some of which span over 40 years. The fact that customers return to us over so many years is a demonstration of our high quality standards. Throughout the generations "service and support" has been our standard.
Currently, the third generation is in apprenticeship and working closely with the second generation, passing down the ethics, morals and values that have ensured the companies’ continued success. From estimating to production a family member works in every aspect of the business, as it has always been for over 60 years.
