Customer service is our number one priority
We have multiple yard locations and hire professional, knowledgeable, customer-oriented staff.
J&B Materials, Charles Hardy and Hathaway Building Materials have eight conveniently located yards across the region including seven in California (El Cajon, Escondido, Perris, El Centro, Paramount, Palm Desert, Sacramento) and one in Honolulu, Hawaii. Teaming up with the top brands in the industry, we live by one simple pledge: getting the right products into our customers hands as quickly and safely as possible. And our network of yards ensures that you are never too far from our shipping footprint.

J&B Materials started as a stocking company in 1978. It was founded by Robert J. Young and became incorporated on December 6, 1979. In March 2015, it became a GMS company. J&B Materials currently staffs 120 employees.
J&B later acquired two more companies in California – Charles G. Hardy, which had served the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim area since 1946, and Hathaway Building Materials which has served building supply customers in Palm Desert since 1944.
Many of our senior staff have worked at J&B, Hardy, and Hathaway for over 20 years, and some have been with us for 30 years or more. We have several employees who started their careers in delivery and warehouse positions and later advanced into management. This is a testament to our great culture and work environment. We really define our employees as family and truly care about the health and welfare of everyone who works for us.
