GBS founder Buford Landers oversaw construction of the company's first facility on Old Mill Road back in 1972, and to this day the site bustles with energy while fulfilling the original - and on-going - mission to be the preferred building material supplier by providing products and services of unsurpassed excellence.
“The Mauldin location is the company’s largest volume store,” says Store Manager Bronson Whiteside, “and it also has our Millwork Specialty Center.”
As a company 98% employee-owned, GBS has a jump on other suppliers that are headquartered from afar. “We are unique in this market because we are locally owned,” Whiteside says, “and that enhances our customer focus and our customer service.”
Managing the original GBS store is especially rewarding. “The best part,” Whiteside says, “is being part of a company that always operates with honesty and integrity.”
“GBS has consistently supplied us with expert customer service. I have great confidence in their product knowledge and ability to provide us with a wide spectrum of quality building products. They both listen and advise, to help us get the best product to fit our particular needs. It is a pleasure to deal with a well-run company that instills the importance of customer service throughout its entire organization.”
