Our History

home_imageCentral Valley Builders Supply began its humble roots in 1955 with a small location on Main Street in St Helena, California. St Helena is the center of the Napa Valley and thus the name ‘Central’ Valley Builders Supply was derived. At the time there were 3 employees, one truck and one forklift.

Pat and Evy Patterson started the business in 1955. Their son, Bob Patterson took over the helm in 1973. Upon his untimely death in 1992, his wife Kathleen, became President. In 2003 the third generation, with Stephen Patterson, lead the company and their affiliates.

The success of the company has been due to the loyalty and caliber of its employees and customers alike. There are many employees who have completed their entire career with Central Valley Builders Supply and today there are 4 employees who have helped guide the company for over 30 years. We sincerely thank all of our present and past staff for their dedicated service not only to the company but also to our customers. Our business is operated as a family and the employees are part of the extended Patterson family.

With beginnings in a small town, where one’s reputation is made by “doing what you say you will do”, the value of being as good as our word is a key part of our company culture. We are a large company while serving customers in the counties of Napa, Sonoma, Solano, Yolo and the outlying areas but we strive to treat our employees, customers and suppliers with respect, dignity, and care. We seek mutual success in all our relationships. It has been what has made us successful over the years and what we believe will continue our success.
