Titan Interiors LLC, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based contractor specializing in metal stud framing and drywall installation, was named to Walls & Ceilings Top 50 Contractors List for 2016, one of only two Michigan companies to appear on the list.
Titan Interiors President Bahrudin “Rudy” Kadiric and his partner and brother Muhamed also were featured on the front cover of the magazine as an example of entrepreneurs who succeeded against the odds by starting a company during the Great Recession and who “displayed quality craftsmanship and a steady and upward growth commitment.”
Titan Interiors and the other contractors on the list have exhibited “numerous skill-sets that warrant them among the best,” said John Wyatt, the magazine’s editor. “And what makes these companies the best is their thirst to stay progressive and relevant.” A monthly magazine with approximate national circulation of 30,000, Walls & Ceilings provides news and information of interest to wall and ceiling contractors, architects, dealers/distributors and other industry professionals.
Titan Interiors has experienced steady growth since it was founded six years ago by Rudy and Muhamed Kadiric, generating revenue of $12.6 million last year with an approximate 10/90 split between residential and commercial/industrial drywall projects. Rudy Kadiric said the company has made a name for itself in West Michigan by tackling high profile projects such as The Venue at 12 Monroe and the Jenison Center for the Arts now under construction, and the recently completed Tanger Outlets Mall in Byron Center.
Although the company is still relatively new, its staff of about 35 full time employees and independent contractors provides high-quality interior and exterior framing, drywall installation, insulation, acoustical and specialty ceilings, acoustical sound panels, EIFS/stucco, flooring and painting. Depending on the project portfolio, Titan Interiors may have a peak staff of 100 people.
Kadiric said he “immediately fell in love with the construction industry” after taking an apprenticeship course when he was 18, and he is grateful that he decided to launch his company with offices at 4717 Broadmoor Ave. SE in Kentwood because West Michigan wasn’t as hard hit by the recession as other areas of the country.
“West Michigan is blessed with strong demand for construction right now, and Titan Interiors is in the thick of it,” Kadiric said. “We are going to be continuously busy throughout the rest of the year. And we intend to use this opportunity to reach our goal of becoming the number one drywall contractor in West Michigan.”
