Norfolk Hardware and Home Center was started in 1934 when Ben and Lena Rosen opened a small plumbing supply company on Norfolk Street in Boston. Over the years, that small plumbing supply company grew into what Norfolk Hardware and Home Center is today. Norfolk Hardware and Home Center added on additional product categories beyond plumbing by listening to our customers. Our loyal customers asked us to bring on additional product categories such as paint, building materials, and so much more. Almost 30 years ago in 1985 Norfolk Hardware’s customers asked us to supply them with cabinets and countertops. The cabinet and countertop world was successful and from that success we opened Norfolk Kitchen and Bath and Northeast Cabinet and Countertop Distributors.
Norfolk Kitchen and Bath is New England’s largest and fastest growing kitchen and bath company. We have 5 showrooms today and more on the way. We design and sell kitchen and bathrooms in retail showrooms as well as to the trades through builder and multi-family salespeople.
Northeast Cabinet and Countertops was started in 2003 to provide Norfolk Hardware and Norfolk Kitchen and Bath with the best countertops and custom millwork options. In addition to supply The Norfolk Companies with these items, Northeast Cabinet and Countertops is becoming a preferred vendor among many general contractors for countertop and custom millwork needs.
Today, The Norfolk Companies have about 150 employees and growing. Our employees are what makes us successful, and we recognize that our team is vital to our success. In every one of our business segments, you will find some of the most experienced and dedicated employees that are at the top of the industry with experience and skill. We recently purchased a new facility in Braintree, MA. This 75,000 square foot building houses our corporate offices, shipping and receiving, Northeast Cabinet and Countertop Distributors, and our sales department. This new building allows the most efficient shipping and distribution to our kitchen and bath stores and our hardware store.
The Norfolk Companies remains family owned and operated by 3rd and 4th generations of the Rosen Family. To our current customers, thank you for your business! It is because of your loyal support that we have grown over the years. To our prospective customers, please reach out to us today! We are here and ready to be your preferred supplier for all of the products and services we sell.
