Hinton Wooden & Metal Buildings in Princeton is about to surpass the $1 million mark in sales for 2017.
The family-owned business is a dealer for Murphreesboro, Tenn-based Old Hickory Buildings & Sheds.
Ryan and Christy Malham started their business in February 2015. They named the business after Christy’s family name, Hinton. Christy is the daughter of retired Army Col. Randy Hinton. Christy is in charge of sales, Ryan’s in charge of the marketing.
The Malhams will be recognized for their achievement in December at a banquet sponsored by Old Hickory Buildings in Nashville, Tenn.
Ryan has served a couple of stints in Afghanistan as a multimedia coordinator. He got the idea of selling wooden and metal buildings from his father Paul Malham, who was successfully selling them in Georgia.
In 2016, Hinton was the number one dealer in North and South Carolina. Old Hickory has more than 600 sales locations in 20 states.
Hinton is located on a 2.5-acre lot at 9672 U.S. Hwy 70 East, between Ormond’s Mart and the Johnston and Wayne County lines.
