About the Goldsboro Builders Supply Family of Companies
The Very Beginning
In 1953, Arthur Lee came to Goldsboro and opened a supply store on Carolina Street. He named the retail building Goldsboro Builders Supply. C.L. Lynn, the company’s part owner, managed the store until he passed away in 1963.
At that time, Arthur Lee permanently moved to Goldsboro to handle the daily operations of Goldsboro Builders Supply.
In the same location, he later founded and managed Goldsboro Builders’ first affiliate company, Perry Concrete. The business was opened in 1964 and sold in 1980.
In early 1979, Goldsboro Builders’ first building supply affiliate was opened in Mount Olive. The business was named Number One Builders Supply.
In 1980, the third building supply affiliate, Builder’s Bargain Center of Goldsboro, was organized. Arthur Lee's son, David Perry, then joined the Goldsboro Builders in 1982 after graduating from East Carolina University.
In 1983, the fourth building supply affiliate, Builder’s Bargain Center of Greenville, was opened. In 1985, an additional organization, Coastal Building Components Truss Plant, was launched in Kinston. The last two ventures have since been sold.
In 1986, Arthur Lee died tragically in a house fire. After the incident, David Perry was appointed as a minority shareholder with his uncle. In 1989, the fifth building supply affiliate, Builder’s Bargain Center of Kinston, was opened in the former facility of Coastal Building Components.
David Perry purchased all of his uncle's interest in 1990, and he became the sole owner of Goldsboro Builders’ five building supply businesses.
Builder’s Bargain Center of Fayetteville, the sixth building supply organization, opened in 1991.
During the 1990s, Goldsboro Builders’ seventh and eighth building supply affiliates were opened, namely, Builder’s Bargain Center of Sanford and Wilmington. Both of these affiliates have since been closed and consolidated into the other stores.
In 1995, Builder’s Bargain Center of Goldsboro relocated and changed its business model to reflect Ace Home Center.
The Early 2000s
In 2000, Ace Home Center closed, and the shopping center where it operated became the starting point of the Goldsboro Builders’ commercial real estate business. The center is currently where Harris Teeter - Goldsboro Commons operates.
Goldsboro Builders then diversified into real estate and construction-related businesses in eastern North Carolina. Warehouses, mini storage facilities, offices, apartments, strip centers, and commercial and residential developments are part of Goldsboro Builders’ portfolio.
The Mid 2000s
In 2006, Goldsboro Builders moved to its current location at 701 Patetown Road. The state-of-the-art, 15-acre facility features a 7,000 sq ft showroom, as well as an 8,000 sq ft millwork shop. In addition, it has a 5,000 square foot office, a 110,000 square foot warehouse, and a fully stocked, drive-in lumberyard.
In 2007, Builder’s Bargain Center of Kinston refined its business model. During the process, it became Kinston Builders Supply. In 2012, Goldsboro Builders purchased the assets of Morehead Builders Supply in Morehead City, NC.
Since the company began operations in 1947, it is the oldest business in the building supply group. Also in 2012, the operating name of Number One Builders Supply was changed to Mount Olive Builders Supply.
The Goldsboro Builders Supply Family of Companies is a diverse group of businesses. It operates a wide range of corporations throughout Eastern North Carolina, including building supply stores, residential development companies, residential and commercial real estate firms, and mini storage businesses.
