Napanee is a South Eastern Ontario town approximately 40 minutes south of Kingston. The Chapman family began their journey in 1912 on Rover Road in Napanee with the manufacture of brick and clay drain tile and selling and distributing heavy goods and hardware.

In the year 2000; the Chapman family purchased Kimmerly Lumber on Centre Street where they are now looking forward to serving the community as a full service lumber, building materials and hardware store as Castle Building Centres.

Robert and David Chapman, along with family members Matt, Rick, Sue, Jenn and James will continue to provide knowledge, expertise and superior customer care to the people of Napanee. The team is looking forward to their transition and providing customers with an extensive hardware line at competitive prices.
