Levi’s Building Components moved into a new building at the first of the year and is wasting no time in filling it with new and existing product lines for the metal roofing industry.
The new 122,000 square feet building in Ephrata, Pennsylvania is more than triple the size of the old 40,000 square feet building eight miles south in Leola. All sales and production areas are located in the new building.
According to Ben Wachter, Controller, plans for the move began in 2017 in reflection of the company’s growth in the components line. He said the company “strives to be the company that metal roofing suppliers rely on daily.”
Added this year to inventory have been caulk guns, gloves and structural screws. They are looking to add tin snips soon. The company will add more products as they are evaluated.
Wachter said the new building is helping the company meet its goals of “facilitating our continued growth in the industry, better serving our customers by offering more variety of products, and stocking inventory to meet their demands.”
In 1978, Levi S. Fisher started Levi’s Nail Coatings and began serving his customers out of a small shop in Bird In Hand, Pennsylvania. As the industry changed from nails to screws so did Levi’s. Along with new methods used for head painting, adding their own fastener line and the industry evolving to primarily screws, Levi’s transformed as well. In 1995 the business was moved to Leola, and the name was changed to Levi’s Nails and Screws.
After growing into a supplier of more than just screws and carrying a large array of building products, the name was changed to Levi’s Building Components in 2014. Now at the helm of the business is Levi Fisher’s son Steve.
