About

Nate Penland, Madison County native and owner of Southern Sky Enterprises, brings knowledge backed by years of experience as an industrial welder and residential building contractor.

Growing up with a father who was a general contractor in Marshall, N.C. allowed Nate to learn all the aspects of residential construction first hand and from a young age. From the foundation to the roof, Southern Sky Enterprises has the knowledge, tools, and abilities to complete all your residential construction needs. Along with these important skills and the local contacts we have made over the years, we can orchestrate with other contractors to keep the job running smoothly.

Nate spent six years in the Navy as a Machinist Mate, providing him with experience in industrial equipment maintenance and repair.

Nate developed a love of welding from watching his uncles work metal both on the farm and as a career. Nate received his Associate’s Degree in Welding from AB Technical College and has since obtained job experience in the power, oil, gas, and shipyard industries where most of his welds were x-rayed to ensure quality performance. Nate has over seven years combined education and work experience in welding.

Nate has a perspective that can only be gained through a combination of years of hands on experience, education, certifications, and on the job training.
