Builders Specialties Supply, Inc.
Builders Specialties Supply, Inc. was founded in September 1971 by Oliver and Virginia Gore. Builders Specialties started out in a small building on Navy Blvd. In 1973, with the determination and drive to keep his business going strong management then decided to move to a bigger more efficient building on John Gray Road. A mere six months later the building industry took a dramatic downturn, but the determination to provide and supply the local areas is what kept the business going during this trying time. In 1979, Builders Specialties Supply started fabricating steel exterior doors and suppling insulated aluminum windows.
In 1981 the building caught on fire and destroyed the entire inventory and records. Once again, with the determination to keep Builders Specialties Supply going, we were open for business three days later in an empty warehouse across the street. In 2004, Hurricane Ivan hit the Gulf Coast and destroyed many of the businesses in Pensacola, including Builders Specialties Supply. Parts of the roof collapsed, the back wall of the building was gone and quite a bit of inventory, stored records and production equipment was destroyed. Once again, with the drive and determination management and staff had the business open and running a few days later.
Now many years later Builders Specialties Supply, Inc. is still going strong! We are now located at 3857 N. Palafox Street (John Gray Rd) in approx 30,000 square foot building.
