C.H. Briggs Makes Community, Customer Focus of 50 Year Anniversary 

News & Events

Reading, PA - C.H. Briggs is pleased to announce another milestone in the history of our company. Thanks to loyal customers, our co-workers, suppliers and strong civic partners, we are proudly celebrating fifty years in business. Since Harry Briggs first started the company in 1967, C.H. Briggs has grown into a thriving third-generation family business. Under the leadership of Julia Klein, C.H. Briggs is now one of the top women-owned specialty distributors in the United States offering a wide range of interior building materials and architectural products.

On the occasion of our 50th anniversary C.H. Briggs is pleased to announce a new initiative to provide co-workers with volunteer time off (VTO). This allows our co-workers the flexibility to give their time to the organizations they feel most passionate about. In the short four months since this was announced, we have been able to give 120 volunteer hours back to 15 different organizations.  In addition, our five fulfillment centers - located in Telford (PA), Reading (PA), Savage (MD), Charlotte (NC), and Norcross (GA) – have partnered with local Habit for Humanity chapters to make product donations.   To date, we have been able to donate over 250 items to the Habitat ReStore in these locations to support their important work in our local cities and neighborhoods.  Supporting our communities is a pillar of our core values.  

As we turn 50, we launched the latest edition of The Big Green Book catalog, showcasing the products our customers need and use every day.  From Abrasives to Surfaces to Z-mount brackets, and everything in between, we are committed to providing you with the best materials and services which you have come to know from C.H. Briggs.  We are grateful to our customers in our communities who trusted us to help them provide high quality goods and well-designed projects. Their demands, challenges and feedback have pushed us to improve continuously.  

We are pleased to celebrate the past but remain focused on the future to continue to thrill our new and current customers, and add more fresh and innovative products from our valued supplier partners.
