His journey within the company began in 1991 when his father noticed his interest in the industry and challenged him to learn the trade. Throughout the years under the tutelage of skilled foremen, he went from fabricating and welding gates to branching off and learning the electronic component of access controls and barriers as they related to the changing industry of the time.
His aptitude in all aspects of the family business as well as his constant desire to grow and release only premium products earned him the VP Position in 2012. A former collegiate wrestler, Nick now spends his quality down time supporting his son’s wrestling alma mater as well as becoming a referee in the sport.

Paul and his team are excellent at addressing challenges thrown at them. They do not make excuses on why things cannot be done; they solve problem for you by doing what can be done. When we were in a bind, Paul would throw resources at our project to make sure we were successful. Their attitude is a great fit for our high-visibility and high-maintenance project in San Francisco. Additionally, Golden Bay’s crew cared for installed work by others, and took great care to make sure their metals were protected during transport. I would definitely like to work with them again.

I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to Mike and his crew of workers ( Golden Bay Fence Plus ) for installing the new fences at Rio Vista. Thank Mike and his crew for their hard work and dedication since June 16, 2022. I’ve seen lots of contracted crews at Rio Vista in the years that I have worked here. They would leave the place unkept, tools left out, gates left open etc. Mike’s crew has always been polite, professional, well mannered and gentlemen. Not one time did they leave any of the areas that they were working at unkept, they cleaned up and made sure the gates were closed and locked. If it were left up to me I would have Mikes men (Golden Bay Fence Plus) contracted to do all MDUSD schools that need new fencing.

Huge thanks to the whole Golden Bay Fence Team for the outstanding work put in place at the Las Vegas Stadium. You were faced with numerous challenges, but there wasn’t a fence or barrier that could prevent the GBF team from getting done!!! I hope to work with your team in the future!

I have worked with Golden Bay Fence on numerous projects over the years at the San Jose airport ranging from temporary security fence to installing the new perimeter security fence and barrier wall. Both their crews in the field and their office staff do excellent work. I would highly recommend them for any upcoming project!

It has been a real pleasure working with your team at Pleasant Hill Elem. School perimeter security fence. I can’t say enough about Mike Root, Leo, Alex and the rest of your crew for their A++ customer service. I have zero complaints from the site and that is a testament to your crew. Keep up the good work!! I will definitely put you in my A list contractors for all of our future projects large or small. Thanks once again.
