The Hodges Group was formed and incorporated on May 1990 in Portland, Tennessee. The corporation was formed by three partners which included: Nancy
Hodges, Garney B. Scott, and J. Lynn Jackson. Mrs. Hodges saw several opportunities to provide professional services to the refractory industry. Utilizing her
and her partners’ industry expertise and business management skills, Hodges Group, Inc. was formed.
The Company was able to quickly secure a client that was desperately seeking the services of the newly formed company. This client developed into a core revenue
asset for the ﬂedging company. The Hodges Group’s quality work and communication helped form a good reputation for the company, which provided a
consistent growth over the years.
In fact, the company experienced such steady growth that in 1994, the company brought Nancy’s husband, James Hodges, into the business. Continual growth and need for quality personnel prompted Mr. Rick Hodges to be added. The talent pool of the Hodges Group team was able to expand and diversify the company’s portfolio. This portfolio has shaped the company’s core competencies to include: Construction, Industrial Maintenance, Fabrication, and Energy.
In May 2003, Mrs. Hodges was able to purchase the business ownership shares from the two other original partners. The company has maintained their talented workforce and commitment to quality work with excellent customer service at all times. This commitment is reﬂected by the multitude of awards presented to the company including Small Business of the Year, Industrial Excellence Award and Governor’s Excellence Award.
