East Haven Builders Supply

166 Colonial Road
Manchester, CT


East Haven Builders Supply was founded in 1960 by the Thomas family with the goal of becoming the dominant supplier of building materials to contractors primarily in the Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York markets. This family owned business sustained exponential growth while maintaining the core value of immediate response to details, customer needs, and service issue resolution. In 1995 the company ventured into the design and sales of kitchen, bath, and other cabinetry with the creation The Kitchen Factor, a showroom open to the public in addition to builders and remodeling contractors. Experienced, seasoned professional designers were brought in with expertise, not only to sell product, but to plan, coordinate, and factor in all the components that make up the completed kitchen installation. In 2009 East Haven Builders Supply and The Kitchen Factor were acquired by US LBM Holdings, LLC and our original owner returned to the helm as president of the company that he formerly owned. US LBM currently consists of 12 leading building material distributors serving the Midwest, Northeast, Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Western U.S in 11 states with more than 60 locations. US LBM is one of the fastest growing companies in our industry and is recognized as the 13th largest lumber and building materials distributor in the U.S. US LBM encourages its businesses to continue their entrepreneurial spirit while enjoying the capital and other resources of a much larger national organization. Other companies talk about being responsive to the customers’ needs. At East Haven Builders Supply and The Kitchen Factor it is what we do. It is how we originally built the business. It is how we will continue to build the business. It is in our DNA.
