A & A Lumber Supply is a 2nd Generation family run business named for brothers Angelo and Alfred Mastrippolito.
The brothers began in the mushroom growing and packing business in 1967 as A & A Mushroom. Over the years, Alfred noticed that many of the mushroom growers in the area had the same problem; finding a reliable source for the Cypress lumber needed for their operations. He developed relationships with a few Cypress saw mills in the southeastern United States and began supplying lumber to the mushroom farms of Southeastern Pennsylvania and Delaware.
In 1978, Fred purchased the former Tim's Packing cannery on Limestone Rd and A & A Mushroom Supply Co. began operations. The new location had a large warehouse and outdoor space, storing lumber outside was not an issue; the issue was how to best take advantage of the vast warehouse space.
In the 1980's he bought a truckload of scratch & nick metal doors and sold them for "$8 and up". Finding success in door sales expanded inventory into the thousands of both new and salvage doors. The warehouse was full but customers needed help with non-standard and custom doors sizes. The door shop began as a small room with one table to build and alter doors, today the shop is much larger with 4 tables. Matching new doors from using the old door as a template is a key element of our shop.
As our product & services expanded to include Windows and Millwork, we changed our name to A & A Lumber Supply LLC.
We are now owned and operated by Fred's sons; Alfred Jr and Louis Mastrippolito. Angelo's son John is the Sales Manager.
Our mission is two part:
First, we help customers solve their immediate problems in the mushroom industry and residential door business.
Second, we make our customers our friends.
