On October 6, 1967, a dream became a reality when Lenoir Building Supply opened its doors for business. Larkin Bentley founded and served as President of the company until his passing in January 2003. Two of his sons, Gary Bentley and Keith Bentley continue to run the day to day operations with the support of his wife Viola B. Bentley. Jimmy Bentley, the youngest son is a stockholder in the company.
Our family’s goal is not just to provide product, but to offer exceptional service, which is what this company was built on. Many of our patrons have watched our company grow as well as our family team. Chad and Matt, Gary and Keith’s sons are the newest generation to follow Larkin’s dream of quality service at the right price for everyone that walks through our door.
In supporting our strong sales force, Gary’s wife Lorene follows up with customer service in the accounting department.
We invite you to stop by, say hello, and be a part of our family and friends team.
