Castle Building Centres Group starts off 2015 in high gear with the announcement of the newest independent to join the group.

Harold and Goetz a long time Homecare/Tim-BR-Mart member has now opened its doors to the local community as the newest Castle Building Centres location in Brantford, ON.

“Independents looking for a secure and transparent buying group with a proven hardware solution and a business model that delivers profitability and the freedom to run their business their way, are looking at Castle. The decision for Harold and Goetz to join the group is yet another example of how we continue to attract successful Independents from competing buying groups to Castle”
Ken Jenkins, President

The Harold and Goetz story began in Brantford, Ontario back in 1921 as a small goods wholesaler who later transitioned into a roofing materials distributor and installation company. By 1980, the business had evolved into a full service roofing contracting company for both residential and flat roofing projects and full service building material wholesale and retail operation.

Today, Harold and Goetz continues to grow with a full line of lumber, building materials and hardware. The roofing division has become a full-service residential and commercial contracting operation and the new Castle location also offers a full line of residential windows, doors and installations.

“Like many Independents today; Harold and Goetz were seeking a buying group that prides itself on transparency and member prosperity. The Castle business model of working for their members and making audited financial statements available and dispelling the mystery of how rebates are dispersed made Castle the right choice.”
Bruce Holman; Business Development Manager; Central Region

Partners Blake Agnew; former Chairman of the LBMAO and Jamie Grierson, who manages the roofing division are looking forward to the transition to Castle and this new phase for Harold and Goetz. The Castle Building Centres location will be served by over twenty-five experienced staff members specializing in sales and service of lumber, building materials, roofing, window and door products as well as expert installation services.

Castle welcomes Harold and Goetz to the Castle family.
