1939 the late Amandus D. Moyer purchased the wooden
roller coaster at the Sanatoga Amusement Park. Demolition
started immediately and all of the lumber was moved
to his home in Gilbertsville, PA, the present location
of our Gilbertsville yard. Before long this supply
of lumber was depleted and he traveled to the coal
regions of Pennsylvania to purchase a coal cracker
which he then dismantled and hauled back to Gilbertsville
for his customers. New lumber was added in 1940 and
other building materials were soon to follow. In the
mid 1950's, his sons, Francis and Donald, joined him
in the business and the company continued to prosper.
Buildings, offices and warehouses were added along
with more delivery trucks and our first forklift. Seeing
a need for a second location, the Pottstown yard was
opened at Armand Hammer Boulevard in 1974 on the site
of a local baseball field.
In 1980 Donald Moyer passed away. Shortly
thereafter, his son Scott became one of the owners.
1982 saw the expansion of the Gilbertsville store into
an 8,000 sq. ft. complete home center. In 1985 we doubled
the size of our Pottstown store to 12,800 sq. ft. and
in 1987 a second 8,000 sq. ft. warehouse was added
in Pottstown. In 1988 the millwork shop was enlarged
in Gilbertsville to increase storage area.
In the 90's both locations concentrated
heavily on fully computerizing the business with design
capabilities for decks, garages, Andersen windows and
doors, paint color matching, and kitchens and baths.
In 1993, Terry Moyer, son of Francis, became a partner
in the business. In 1994 A.D. Moyer expanded it's store
hours to better serve it's customer's needs.
In the summer of 1995, A.D. Moyer celebrated
the opening of a third location in Birdsboro, PA to
better serve eastern Berks county. 1997 saw the passing
of Francis Moyer leaving Scott and Terry as the business
partners as well as seeing the addition of our own
