Over 70 years ago, George and Robert met while serving in the US Navy, where they were both assigned to the material procurement department. It was there they learned about the San Francisco Bay Area, and the opportunities in that growing community.
Even in sunny California though, the post-WWII construction industry proved to be a challenge due to the limited availability of lumber and building materials. Through perseverance and smart business planning however, George and Robert gradually built Truitt & White to what it has become today. Carefully, they developed a customer service standard, added staff, and quickly established a reputation for quality products, friendly, helpful service, and a professional approach in serving the building professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Today, Truitt & White continues to be a leader in the San Francisco Bay Area building materials industry. As a 3rd generation family owned and operated business, our strong desire to continually improve while retaining the tried and true elements that make us Truitt & White, is still alive today and a source of pride for all of us. Just like in our first days as a company, our staff is committed to providing the best quality products and customer service for today’s professional builders.
