In North America we are experiencing unprecedented demand and extremely high order volumes for building materials. The result: the building industry is facing supply chain shortages and regularly stocked items may not be promptly available. This is resulting in delayed responses to inquiries and longer lead times for delivery and pickups. As part of the Castle Building Centres Group, we are aggressively seeking to address these shortages and ask for your patience and understanding.

Akins-Brewer has been and continues to be a staple in the Shakespeare community.
