Back in 1924, Hamilton Building Supply was founded on the principle that better products and better service will help builders craft better homes. Fast forward nearly 100 years, and we’re proud to say that those same principles still drive our business today.
People always say, “if those walls could talk…” and if ours could, they would reveal a rich history of delivering top quality building materials from some of the nation’s most trusted manufacturers right to your doorstep. Everything from the inside out, we supply some of the best in windows, doors, siding, trim, mouldings and more while adhering to the desired specifications and budget for your project.
A strong house begins with a solid foundation, and ours began with Stanley and George Hutchinson, the original founders of Hamilton Building Supply in 1924. At that time, the focus was on the sale of masonry products like cement and lime, but soon expanded into lumber, coal and other building materials. In 1967, Jess Coleman Jr., with help from his brother Earl Coleman, purchased the fledgling business from the Hutchinson family. Jess had been a farmer his entire life and worked at Hamilton Building Supply in the winter months prior to purchasing the business, while Earl had become a successful car dealer.
With help from Jess’ sons, Kim, Kip, and Keith, the company experienced substantial growth that included proprietary product lines, pre-hung door manufacturing, custom millwork, tool rental, window and door service technicians, and much more. Innovation is at the core of everything we do, and Keith Coleman has led the ground-up development and expansion of DURATION® Moulding & Millwork, a product line of siding, moulding, and millwork accessory components fabricated out of fly-ash composite material, known as poly-ash.
Today, John Perna serves as the President & CEO of Hamilton Building Supply, while Keith Coleman is the Chairman, and President of DURATION® Moulding & Millwork. Together, the two are expanding on the rich history of the company and will continue to bring the best building products to builders, contractors, and homeowners throughout the tri-state area.
Hamilton Building Supply is continuously working to be the best provider of building material products and solutions to professional contractors and project owners. The company has been expanding its market reach throughout New Jersey, New York, Eastern Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and parts of Delaware and Maryland to better serve its customers. More importantly, the company takes great pride in all of its very talented and dedicated associates.
Here at Hamilton Building Supply, it’s all about building. Building trust. Building relationships. Building your book of successful projects.
