Castle welcomes new member in Newfoundland

Castle Building Centres Group Ltd. announced today a new member in the province of Newfoundland in the lovely community of Gander Bay. Gander Bay Building Supplies is the newest Castle Building Centres location, situated in Victoria Cove, one of the quaint little townships in this Gander riverside area.

“I am always so pleased to see growth in this region of Canada. Newfoundland has some of the most established and loyal dealers in our industry and we are excited Gander Bay Building Supplies chose the freedom and stability of Castle when they needed a change. Castle’s business model is proven successful and will take their business to the next level.” Ken Jenkins, President

Gander Bay Building Supplies has been in business in this location for almost 30 years. Current owners Todd and Debbie Brinson took over the business in 2007 and have been hands-on, owner operators, along with 4 other staff members since.

"Todd and I knew the time had come to expand in different directions and that this expansion would require us to be in a more stable environment. We had been hearing a lot of good things about Castle and finally took the plunge! We are very excited to be the newest Castle location in Newfoundland.” Deb Brinson, Co-Owner Gander Bay Building Supplies

This new Castle location in Gander Bay includes a 6,000 square foot retail area which will feature a full range of lumber, building materials and hardware products and top brand names with a sizeable warehouse and lumberyard on the property as well. The customer base is primarily rural area contractors and DIY and the store also offers complete home renovation and construction contracts in the area. Gander Bay also supplies building materials to the Gander River area, an exclusive cottage area only accessible by riverboat or plane.

Bob Delaney, Castle Business Development Manager and former Castle member himself had this to say. “I am very happy to welcome Gander Bay Building Supplies to the Castle family in Newfoundland and Labrador. It’s great to see the confidence that Todd and Debbie already have in our group and look forward to a stable, cost effective environment for them to grow and prosper into the future.”
