A.H. Harris Branch Spotlight - Long Island City (Queens), NY

Our AH Harris Queens store is located off of Borden Ave, just one block from the East River ferry landing and a mere stone throw away from I495 / Queens Midtown tunnel. Our store, formerly of Barker Steel which we acquired that year, opened in June of 2012 with a full line of concrete materials including commercial and residential forming/shoring equipment and accessories. A small but effective team of about 9 folks help branch manager James run our operations: 2 inside sales associates, 2 warehouse associates, 3 outside account managers and 2 drivers for our 2 trucks with additional options if needed.

We carry all your construction supply needs from trusted name brands and our own line of house products. We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality products and professional services to our customers, which range from homeowners and handy-men to contractors and large construction firms, DOT's & municipalities. James O’Connor, our new and recently assigned Harris Queens branch manager, comes with over 15 years of experiencing previously serving as inside sales, branch manager, account manager and operations manager. Our crew utilizes an experienced regional forming and shoring engineer and also has access to AH Harris inhouse F&S specialists.

The branch has come a long way since it was flooded by Hurricane Sandy (Waterline outside the building was over 7’ high and 4’ inside, destroying our offices and showroom and damaging some 1st rack level products beyond repair). Now we have brand new offices, a fantastic showroom and multi-purpose conference & training room. We also have a rebar cutting and bending machine onsite, which turned out to be a great asset and is giving us a competitive edge in our neighborhood.

From our facility we service almost all of New York City, Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island, NY and some of the neighboring towns and counties. Our location is – in true NYC style – rather compact, but highly effective and easy to get to. A 5,000 sf warehouse and store with an attached 9,000 sf yard is all we have, but all it takes to look after our customers. We stock local favorite building materials and construction supplies tailored to our Big Apple customer base. Why don’t you stop by and see for yourself! Parking is available. Get in touch with James and team today!
