Branch Spotlight: Meet Kenseal's Beltsville Team!

by A.H. Harris

Located right outside of our nation’s capital, Kenseal Beltsville has accomplished so much since its opening in 1984. It all began with Mike Blair, current manager of Kenseal Beltsville, making calls to potential customers in the Washington metropolitan area in May of that year. It was a grassroots effort - started by selling product out of his car from our former West Orange, NJ office. Fast forward to later that summer, Bill Lineburg (now a Senior Account Manager out of Kenseal Chantilly) joined the team and helped open a location on Bacon Drive, across from our current warehouse. After many successful years in Beltsville, Kenseal expanded yet again in the greater DC area with a location in Chantilly, VA.

A.H. Harris Branch Spotlight - New Haven, CT

by Martin Hennig

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!
