Tim Smythe – Founder & Chairman
Tim Smythe began his career as a drywall contractor in Hawaii. Frustrated with the poor quality and inefficiencies of metal corner bead, Smythe began to search for a solution that would speed installation and save on labor and material costs. As a result, he developed the first NO-COAT® drywall corner in 1996. This experiment ultimately became ULTRAFLEX™, a flex roll product designed for challenging off-angle applications. As Chairman, he is closely involved in the research, design and creation of new products and technologies.
