Our Story

Our Story

In 1953, Dan Mitchell relocated from Sherman, Texas to Columbus, Georgia with the idea of building a full service fence company. He worked for the next 10 years with local fence companies and in 1963, Dan teamed with Bryan Pennell and opened United Fence Company. As shown in the photo below, it was originally located on Talbotton Road in Columbus. Dan eventually became sole owner of the company which has operated in Columbus continuously since its inception in 1963.

In 1973, Dan's son Moody, joined the company and has remained actively involved to this day. Dan's son Mark, joined the company in 1984 and in 1991 Moody and Mark became co-owners of the company when Dan retired. In the year 2000, they built their new office, showroom and manufacturing facility at 4836 Miller Road, where the business has operated for 17 years.

Over the years, the type of fencing in which they specialize in has evolved. In the early years of operation, chain link fencing was their main product. In the 1970s, Dan had the foresight to introduce "custom built wood privacy fencing" to the Columbus area. They continue to install a large amount of this type of fencing.

For more than 50 years, the Mitchells have continued to stay current with the changing preferences of their customers, and provide excellent quality products and service.

From their start in 1963 to the present day, United Fence Company has helped thousands of commercial and residential customers improve the security, use, and beauty of their property. As one of the largest fence contractors in the southeast, United Fence Company has been committed to excellence in the design, construction, warranty, and maintenance of their products.
