In the latest edition of our popular branch spotlights series, we get an inside look into our Newington operations. This is one of our busiest branches and the one closest to Harris' founding place in Connecticut. The team is as diverse as the material on the shelves. All your construction supply needs under one roof. Now let's hear it from the team on Holmes Road.
Located right outside of our nation’s capital,
Located in the capital of North Carolina, the Kenseal Raleigh team services the bustling city and surrounding suburbs of the Research Triangle. We opened for business in July of 2006 in Garner, NC by virtue of acquisition of Design Materials, a regional distributor of EIFS and Stucco products. We moved to 2539 Noblin Road, just off Interstate 440 in 2010 where you can still find us today.
Episode XIX of our 'Meet the Team' leadership spotlights. Today, I got the opportunity to interview Tad Spiller, nominated by Mike Griffin. Tad is the Account Manager at our Portland branch. On Facebook we run an album called “Faces & Places of AH Harris” and we also feature snapshots of our crew on Instagram. But we want to give some insights into who our company leaders are, what their background is and include some ‘personal touch’ that goes beyond what you would find on LinkedIn. Let’s hear it from Tad!

We have been at Saw Mill River Road in Ardsley for 5 years now, continuing to service Westchester County, The Bronx, and some northern parts of Manhattan with pick up business from the Tri-state area. Keeping up with high delivery demand we’ve upgraded to a CDL flat bed with 30,000lb cap. We pride ourselves on our great customer service and quick turn around on orders. We currently have 2500+ days without a lost time accident and safety is our number one concern everyday.
Along the Connecticut coast line you'll find AH Harris & Kenseal of New Haven. We are located at the intersecting routes I91 & I95 at the base of the Q-Bridge (which, by the way, our concrete forms helped build!). We opened the facility in 2010 with only 3 employees and 1 delivery truck. The New Haven location turned quickly into a central hub that now supplies 5 other AH Harris locations (Newington, Stamford, Chicopee, Fairfield & Ardsley NY) with building material and construction equipment. Our team now consists of 25 employees between AH Harris & Kenseal personnel, a tractor trailer, a form yard with commercial forms to rent or purchase along with 3 delivery trucks equipped with lifts to load I unload material to meet the demand of all the construction activity in the state. We came a long way!

Chesapeake, VA we opened our doors at our new location in 2012 and have been serving the construction needs of our customers in the Seven Cities (Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Hampton, and Newport News) and beyond with outstanding service and dedication.

AH Harris & Sons, Inc. opened their Buffalo, New York Branch in April 2008 in Bowmansville, NY. Our large 3500 sqft showroom showcases the many products we supply to the concrete construction industry in the four county area including Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, and Cattaraugus counties as well as North Western Pennsylvania.

Hello, and welcome to AH Harris Portland, Maine! We have been serving the southern counties (Cumberland, York, Oxford) of the state since 1994. Originally opened on Warren Avenue off Exit 48 of the Maine Turnpike, we now operate just up the street at 14 Rainmaker Drive (for some GPS use 585 Riverside Street). Service to our valued customers with the new location has been greatly improved with multiple pick-up areas around the facility. A full service loading dock with forklift access allows both incoming and outgoing materials to move with ease. 3 smaller loading doors facilitate customer service, as well as our large 16-foot overhead serving as our main pick-up area. Getting you in and out and back to your jobsite is our top priority!
