EBS has a retail hardware-oriented focus, will this change?

The 10 new Hammond-EBS Building Supplies locations will continue to operate business as usual with a retail hardware-oriented focus with employees who have the knowledge and experience to provide excellent customer service, a major similarity for the two companies.

EBS Building Supplies and their employees have a long history and heritage of serving their customers with a wide variety of products, similar to a traditional local hardware store. Hammond Lumber Company is very mindful of that and respects the company’s 48-year history of serving their customers’ needs so their product offerings will stay the same.

For Hammond Lumber Company, it will be business as usual, with the Hammond locations continuing to operate with a pro-oriented hardware focus.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I have an account at EBS, do I need to fill out a new Hammond credit application?

There will be no immediate change with the EBS credit process. You do not need to fill out a new Hammond credit application and your credit status at EBS will remain the same.

Will there be any Hammond store closings?

As part of the acquisition, and after careful consideration, we will be closing our two smallest operations, located in Pemaquid and Wilton. The Pemaquid branch, and its three employees, will be consolidated into our Damariscotta store, and the Wilton branch, with its four employees, into our Farmington store. This decision was made as part of our company’s long-term growth strategy, which will enable us to pursue an even stronger business model.
