YBC’s family of companies offer the same level of professional service you get from Your Building Centers.

Berlin Lumber has been serving their community in Somerset County with quality building materials and truss manufacturing for over 60 years. In the beginning of 2019, Berlin Lumber became part of the YBC family. While Berlin Lumber is now under new ownership, they still have the same knowledgeable and dedicated team of employees that have always been there to serve you.

When a new business is acquired by YBC, it aligns itself with YBC’s corporate structure of 100% employee ownership. Since the staff at these businesses become employee owners, each employee now has their own personal stake in the company’s success. While now owned by Your Building Centers, Berlin Lumber and other companies such as Klinger Lumber, R.G. Miller, and Palmerton Lumber continue to operate under their originally founded names. Each of these businesses have been operating in their respective communities for over half a century, and the companies have strong name recognition within those local communities they serve. Recognizing this, YBC chooses to keep their history alive while helping to expand their product base through our established channels.

Your Building Centers

YBC’s mission has been and continues to be to serve professional contractors and serious do-it-yourselfers with all of their building material needs extends through to our family of companies. YBC’s history stems back all the way to the early 1900’s with it’s predecessor companies. In 1989, YBC formed into a 100% employee-owned company and officially adopted the Your Building Center name.

YBC is based in Altoona and operates over 13 convenient locations in Bedford, DuBois, State College, Williamsport, and elsewhere throughout central Pennsylvania.

Klinger Lumber

Klinger Lumber has been in business serving Northern Dauphin County, PA for more than 50 Years. The company was established by its founder, Earl E. Klinger in 1956. He started the business in the back alley behind his residence on East Broad Street in Elizabethville, Pa. Over the years the business grew and was eventually relocated in 1962 to its current location at 3903 Route 225 in Elizabethville.

In 2017, Klinger Lumber was acquired by Your Building Centers. Since then, Klinger has been able to expand their offerings of quality building materials and services. Being a part of the YBC family now brings extra perks to Klinger’s customer base. With Klinger being on the same sale system as YBC, a customer who is shopping outside of the Elizabethville area can now go to any other YBC store and get the same level of service and product options that they would at Klinger. Also, Klinger Lumber contractors now enjoy all the other benefits given to YBC contractors such as free product and code trainings and the YOURewards program.
