harry hankins
Cumberland County’s oldest lumber and building material supply firm is a story of local and family tradition. Harry H. Hankins, trained originally as a ship builder in Dorchester, New Jersey, then joined Bridgeton’s construction boom as a general contractor in the late 1800’s. As his contracting business grew,
his difficulty in
quality construction materials prompted a partnership in

1900 with his brother, Frank M. Hankins, Sr., which established the construction material supply business at it's present day office location.

While Harry Hankins concentrated on the contracting business division, building many well known area structures like the Cumberland County Court House, Cohansey Hotel, Ferracute office, Seabrook School, Greenwich School, and the Cumberland County Hospital. Frank M. Hankins, Sr., laid the groundwork for today’s large and many-faceted construction material supply business, H. H. Hankins & Bro.

While no longer active in the general contracting business, H. H. Hankins & Bro. still maintains strong expertise in this area. This expertise, coupled with the organization’s strong family management team, knowledgeable customer-oriented personnel, high and varied inventory levels, and modern material handling equipment has enabled the company to grow to its present large proportions serving its ever increasing industrial, commercial, contractor, and individual home owner markets.

H. H. Hankins & Bro. today encompasses an entire city block plus three separate warehouse locations. The Hankins organization consists of a construction material supply division, a modern builders and homeowners hardware division and store, a cabinet division and showroom and an “old fashioned” mill and shop for custom milling operations. Quality product lines of masonry, lumber, roofing, siding, windows, doors, insulation, millwork, custom and stock cabinets, drywall, paints, hardware, and many specialty products enable
H. H. Hankins & Bro., to easily supply the construction requirements of any project from start to finish.

The Hankins family management remains committed to those business traditions established 114 years ago in addition to their very progressive approach to today’s markets. These policies, their concern for providing quality materials, expert advice and efficient material handling for their customers has earned them the good will of a large clientele from all sections of South Jersey.
