Dant Clayton and Toadvine Enterprises have been working together for over 25 years to provide the very best in spectator seating and are excited to be working together to bring the same great service to the state of Tennessee.

The relationship between Toadvine Enterprises and Dant Clayton didn't start with business, the two owners, Mike Toadvine (Toadvine Enterprises) and Bruce Merrick (Dant Clayton) were Sigma Chi fraternity brothers at their alma mater of Western Kentucky University. Mike became a sales representative for Dant Clayton in 1976, then a short time later opened his own company as an independent dealer. The two companies have formed a great team and Toadvine has become the trusted voice on bleacher seating in Kentucky and is excited for the opportunity of becoming the same trusted resource in Tennessee. "We believe Dant Clayton is the premier seating manufacturer in the industry. Toadvine Enterprises has enjoyed great success in Kentucky with Dant Clayton, and we look forward to continuing that success with Tennessee customers. Our team is committed to providing this same level of excellence for sales, service, and installation in Tennessee," said Mike Toadvine, President of Toadvine Enterprises. A statement to which Chairman of Dant Clayton, Bruce Merrick strongly echoes, "the partnership with Toadvine Enterprises has been a valuable one for both Dant Clayton and customers in Kentucky. The knowledge of the industry this group brings to the table is unparalleled, and we look forward to jointly servicing new clients in this market."

Since opening their doors in 1976, Dant Clayton has focused on providing and improving the overall spectator experience by being an industry leader in innovative bleacher and grandstand design. Similarly, Toadvine Enterprises has focused its entire existence on their customer's satisfaction by providing the best bleacher product and the best service possible. It is only natural the two organizations partner once again to serve the state of Tennessee to bring the best outdoor bleacher seating to the Volunteer state.

There is no job too big or too small for the Dant Clayton/Toadvine team, whether it is a small 4 row bleacher for a recreational park or high school, or a massive steel I-beam grandstand for a college or pro sports stadium. Most recently, Toadvine finished working on the renovation of Commonwealth Stadium at the University of Kentucky. Toadvine added backrests to over 12,000 seats and completed an upgrade to UK's recruiting deck.
