Three generations of high standards, quality products, knowledgeable staff and a ‘customer first’ philosophy
You could say that Guelph Building Supply has proven the old adage ‘a family run business, where you can continue to be on a first name basis with your customers, contractors and suppliers’, still has tremendous merit. Originally opened by Bert Niezen over 30 years ago as Orangeville Building Supply; the business flourished throughout the years, so much so that in 2004, Bert’s son Chris; opened a 2nd Location at Guelph Building Supply.
Bert’s sudden passing in 2021 had Chris then move to manage the Orangeville Building Supply location and turned over the leadership of Guelph Building Supply to his eldest daughter Kaitlyn. She, like her father and her grandfather, continues to uphold the family legacy.
The company offers a plethora of products and is always looking for new and innovative materials to meet their customer’s needs. One such example of this would be Porcea Stone, North America’s leading manufacturer and wholesaler of outdoor porcelain pavers, that are designed in Italy. Porcea Stone’s full range of porcelain tiles have already been time and weather tested in Europe and unlike natural stone or concrete pavers, they don’t require ongoing maintenance and are crack resistant. They have been made with the Canadian outdoors in mind and are ideal for residential driveways, walkways, patios, pools and for commercial offices, hotels, plazas and terraces.
Guelph and Orangeville Building Supply also provide unique products for both drywallers and masons. It’s worth noting that they partner with the large buying group ‘Timbermart’; which assists in sourcing quality products while providing beneficial price points for their customers.
So, between the 2 great locations and superior products; we hope you will visit us to see what we can offer You!
