Our Company Beginnings
Mac-Lad Corp. began as a two-man building material supply delivery company in 1986. Ray MacAlpine started the company with a friend. Ray soon took on every role in the company as driver, helper, accounts receivable, accounts payable, dispatch, and yard guy. After a difference in vision about the future of Mac-Lad, Ray bought out his original partner and became the sole owner. As time went on, the Mac-Lad team grew and business got better as people started to realize the small-business-difference. Mac-Lad now has a core group of employees in our New York and Connecticut location to help you with your drywall needs. Even two of Ray’s children work at the company. We can deliver all the way to Vermont and New Jersey from the Connecticut location while our New York branch services Manhattan to Montauk (and beyond) every day.
Our Mission Statement
Ray MacAlpine is a veteran of the Tri-State drywall industry and realized that he could deliver drywall (and building materials) better than the competition. He founded Mac-Lad Corp. with the idea that the potential of any business lies within the people, which a lot of the building material suppliers on Long Island had forgotten. He has been running the company by this motto since day one and it is the main standard that all of our employees are held to. While most of the other suppliers on Long Island simply drop the material, we make sure to place the materials on site in exactly the way the customer wants, with no hidden fees or costs. Sometimes this means spending more time on the job, but our drivers understand this and are held to a higher standard. We expect the best from them and they deliver (pun intended)!
