W H A T W E A R E
Founded in 1989 by
Kevin and Denise Heebner.
Kevin was in the business for 4 years before starting the company.
He worked for a demolition company
selling used building materials when he decided on April 4, 1989, that
he could not work there anymore. "I was at home with my 2-week-old
son thinking what to do, when I received a phone call to buy a load
I bought that load and sold it. That’s how Heeby’s
began. We started in a small 1,300-square-foot warehouse located in
Blandon, Pa." Kevin and Denise had $6,000 of their own money and
Don and Ann Heebner lent them $3,000 to get started. "My first
truck was a 1972 Chevy stake body. I bought that truck for $600,
so you can imagine how nice it was. When winter came we used to go
outside to a burning barrel to get heat. Our first year's sales were $130,000."
-After 2 years in
the small store we moved to our new 25,000-square-foot store.
-In 1992 we put a
15,000-square-foot addition onto the store.
-In 1993 we
built a warehouse to hold our inventory.
