Jan 2015 – Since 1880, HB&G has led the architectural columns industry with innovations like PermaCast® columns, a proprietary line of high quality fiberglass columns that are considerably lighter, stronger and smoother than other fiberglass columns.
HB&G has also pioneered several other innovative brands like PermaWrap®, the leading brand of wrap-around cellular PVC columns.
Innovation and manufacturing excellence, combined with a broad offering of distinctive products and brands that meet the needs of the market, have remained a big part of HB&G’s success. Jeff Byers, Vice President of Marketing, points out that, “As the nation has changed over the last 135 years, HB&G has changed with it. We have continually delivered new products and technologies to meet the ever changing market needs.”
The Great Recession of 2007 presented a myriad of challenges for building products manufacturers. While many were forced out of business or substantially weakened during the recession, HB&G maintained a strong position in its product categories and used the time to make process improvements and acquisitions.
“Through wars, recessions, and the Great Depression, HB&G’s innovation and resilience have helped them maintain a leadership position in the building materials industry,” said Lance Servais, CEO of HB&G. “We look forward to continuing to service the building material industry with high quality innovative products in the future.” According to Servais, HB&G has big plans to expand their product offering this year with some great new products for builders, contractors, and do-it-yourselfers.
Senior Vice President of Sales, John Purvis, insists that HB&G’s loyal distribution partners, industry leading service platform and a dedicated and talented workforce have a lot to do with the company’s success. “It is a pleasure working for a company that has so much brand name recognition in the building material industry,” Purvis said. “Our product lines are offered by some of the largest distributors in the industry who service thousands of builders and contractors throughout the United States and Canada. Our broad product lines allow us to meet the needs of almost any builder or contractor, whether it be through style choice or price point.”
While HB&G is known worldwide for its innovation with porch columns, the rest of their product lineup is equally impressive. PermaPorch® Railing, PermaPorch® Ceilings and PermaPost® Porch Posts have also become top selling brands, and HB&G dominates many related categories with products like pergolas, balustrade systems, column caps and bases, and accessories.
Not only has HB&G led the millwork industry for the past 135 years with a long list of new and innovative products, they are also the parent company of some of the biggest names in the millwork industry, including Turnkey Millwork, Hartmann-Sanders and Dixie Pacific.
