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!
