Kuiken Brothers makes it official in Newark

By HBSDealer Staff - 09/10/2019
Kuiken Brothers has officially opened its latest residential and commercial building materials location in Newark, N.J.

The location marks the ninth for the Fairlawn, N.J.-based pro dealer.

With convenient connectivity via road and rail and waterfront access on Port Newark’s shipping channel, the facility will help Kuiken Brothers better serve its expanding marketplace in the New Jersey/New York metro region.

“For many years, we have supplied a wide range of residential and commercial projects in Essex, Hudson, and Union Counties,” said Doug Kuiken, president of Kuiken Brothers. “The Newark location will provide us with even greater access, allow for faster delivery into these markets, and will open up opportunities for new relationships to be established with building professionals in the region, including Staten Island, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and coastal New Jersey markets.”

The facility, located at 500 Doremus Avenue, is approximately one mile off Exit 15E on the New Jersey Turnpike and offers easy access to Route 78, Route 280, Routes 1 & 9, and the Garden State Parkway, with delivery capabilities including flatbeds, tractor trailers, truck mounted moffett forklifts, and 4, 6, and 8-story boom trucks.

“We had recognized a need in the Newark market due to the significant growth and redevelopment taking place here,” Matt Kuiken, vice president of operations at Kuiken Brothers, told HBSDealer. “The city is in the midst of a renaissance, and it’s an attractive and exciting place to be.  From a distribution perspective, our site is ideally situated just off of the main transportation corridors.”

The 10-acre site features covered storage, including a drive-through warehouse with nine loading docks, an automated racking system and exterior covered racking (storage sheds and cantilever systems).  All of these structures were designed and built to provide covered storage for product categories to include lumber, windows, doors, moulding, drywall, steel studs, insulation, acoustical ceilings, hardware, plywood, panels, engineered lumber and decking.

Over a quarter mile of rail siding to the waterfront accommodates the direct shipment of lumber, plywood and drywall from premier lumber mills and manufacturing facilities in North America.

Established in 1912, Kuiken Brothers has grown to be a leading supplier of quality residential and commercial building materials with a focus on serving the needs of professional builders, remodelers, developers, and property owners. The company has more than 300 employees.

HBSDealer first reported about the new yard last month as the project was being finalized.
