Modern Builders Supply

MBS expands to Delhi

Family-owned since its inception nearly 70 years ago, Modern Builders Supply (MBS) is the leading distributor of building materials in the Midwest, with 28 distribution centers across six states. Now, MBS is coming to Delhi Township.

MBS – scheduled to open here in August – is a wholesale operation, selling only to licensed contractors. Its products serve "the cosmetic end" of the industry–things that go on or in the home once the framing is completed, said local operations manager Steve Holmes. These include siding, roofing, doors and windows, kitchens and baths, decking and other products by leading brand name manufacturers. MBS also manufactures its own high-quality line of windows and doors, Polaris, in Youngstown, Ohio.

Steve said the decision to expand here was a natural progression in the company's growth. "We've been in Jackson for 20-plus years, and we had been gradually gaining more Lansing-area business for the past 10 or 11 years." The time had come, he said, to add a location to better serve local contractors. 

Supporting the local community is important to Modern Builders Supply. Although Steve is one of four veteran MBS employees who came from the Jackson store to manage the transition, the rest of the Lansing store staff is local, and MBS used as many local contractors as possible during the renovation.

 Modern Builders Supply is at 6121 Aurelius Road, Lansing, 394.7721, modernbuilderssupply.com.
