Lisa Thompson & Emily Davis


Emily Davis has been in the roofing industry for over 20 years.

After working for S&H Green Stamp Company in Fort Worth, Texas for 21 years the company closed. In 1988, Emily Davis went to work for Manville (formally Johns Manville) in the sales and manufacturing office. The following year she moved to San Antonio, Texas as the sales representative for Manville. In 1995 she went to work for U.S. Intec as a sales representative in the San Antonio, Austin, and Waco area becoming a Regional Manager for U.S. Intec in 1999. Two years later, GAF and U.S. Intec combined their sales force and she became the Field Sales Manager for the two companies. In 2004 Danny Adair, the former owner of U.S Intec, purchased a roofing manufacturing company in Fort Worth, Texas (U.S. Ply) and asked her to join his sales force.

Having been an independent rep for U.S. Intec, Emily enjoyed representing several manufacturers. Knowing she would need help covering the large territory, she approached her daughter Lisa Putney and asked if she would like to partner in this endeavor. EMLI, Inc. was formed in 2004 using Emily's first two initials and Lisa's first two initials. EMLI, Inc. is a certified Women Owned Company.

In 2012, Lisa purchased Emily's remaining shares of EMLI, Inc. Emily is still working with the company part time, but is enjoying semi-retirement, with more time to focus on her church and work around the community.
