ABOUT LEWISBURG BUILDERS SUPPLY


Lewisburg Builders Supply was founded in 1941 by the late C. Frank Zimmerman, a local contractor, who was frustrated by his inability to buy anything but basic, ordinary items from existing lumber yards. His willingness to seek out and special order the unusual and hard to find items is a basic premise of our business today.

Arthur R. Borden joined the company part-time in 1946 while attending Bucknell University. His work at the company prompted him to change his major from pre-law to business. Following his graduation in 1950, he became full-time with the exception of the two years he spent active duty in the United States Marine Corp. In 1956, Zimmerman retired and Art Borden purchased his interests.

Lewisburg Builders Supply operated in the downtown location until the 1972 flood, when he began searching for and found a larger location on Hafer Road. The new location opened its doors in 1979 with a new 50,000 square foot facility featuring a lumber yard, design center, and hardware store.

A true family business, Lewisburg Builders Supply continues to thrive under the leadership of Art’s children and grandchildren. Daughter Elizabeth Griffin serves as President, and her husband Mike Griffin is Vice President.

As a family-owned business, we set our own policies. We treat each customer individually, basing our decisions on that person’s singular needs. If you have a problem with our merchandise or service, we’ll make it right. That’s our promise to you.
