Meet The Owner
The Flying Locksmiths is proud to welcome J. Clay Crumbliss to its family! A native of Chattanooga, Clay graduated from the Baylor School and Washington & Lee University with a degree in Economics. Having spent many of his 18 years in family-owned textile businesses, including Henry Crumbliss Yarns, Clay knows the importance of investing in family values to build a successful business: treat all people with respect; be transparent and honest in all of your communications; work hard; and give back to your community.
In 1999, Clay was a founder, partner and the Chief Manager of SCC Golf Properties, LLC which developed Black Creek Club and was ranked “Top 100 Best Residential Golf Courses in the U.S.” by Golfweek magazine in 2015. Most recently, Clay spent the last 15 years as a partner at Patten and Patten, a local investment advisory firm. Clay is a member of Chattanooga’s Downtown Rotary Club and has served on several non-profit boards as well as chairing several fundraisers for local charities.
Clay is married to Gina Crumbliss. They have two married children, four grandchildren and two four-legged furry children.
Since 1946, the mission of The Flying Locksmiths has been to provide top of the line security, utilizing new technologies, while maintaining a family-like atmosphere. We are a national locksmith company who, like Clay, holds firmly to family values. The customer’s security and trust is our top priority!
“If you have a door, we can handle it!”
About Our Location
