Castle Building Centres Group Ltd. announced today their newest member in Western Canada. B & P Building Materials Ltd., long time member of a competing banner has now opened its doors to the local community as the newest Castle Building Centres location. Located in Hinton, Alberta, approximately 81 kilometres northeast of Jasper Provincial Park.

Castle President, Ken Jenkins had this to say. “Independents looking for a buying group with a business model that delivers profitability and the freedom to run their business, their way are looking to Castle. B & P Building Materials Ltd. joining the Castle group is another example of how Castle continues to attract successful Independents from competing buying groups, in all regions”. President, Ken Jenkins

Brenda & Peter Lehoux began B & P Building Supplies as a small lumber yard and building materials retail store in Hinton back in 1996. Family owned and operated, Brenda and Peter worked to develop their business and grow their community reach along with daughters Kim and Amanda. In 2005, B & P Building Materials expanded their location to include the now 5000 sq.ft. of retail space as well as a 3800 sq.ft warehouse and lumberyard.

B & P now services a 100 mile radius around the Hinton area and this new Castle location will offer a complete assortment of lumber and building material products and a more specialize product selection to meet the needs of their market. They take pride in their personalized approach to customer service, delivered to their customer base by a team of knowledgeable and outstanding staff members.

“We made the move to Castle because we wanted to be more profitable and provide our customers with a better product assortment and sharper pricing. We felt our profitability was restricted and limited before the move but feel confident that with Castle we will grow our business and prosper.” Brenda Lehoux, Owner

“Like many Independents today; B & P Building Materials was looking for a buying group that allows them to be truly independent and more profitable. With Castle they won’t have to run flyers and stock the products they do not sell, but be better positioned and have the freedom to identify, stock and advertise the products that their local customers want and need.” Alan Schoemperlen; Business Development Manager; Western Region

Castle welcomes B & P Building Materials to the Castle family.
