About Us : Our Story
When you think of commitment, quality, service and affordability, Appleton Supply set the standard in the metal building products industry for all others to follow. Since 1918, we've valued the tried and true methods of doing business - make a good product, be fair with customers and do whatever it takes to help them succeed. We've done that since the beginning, and we see no reason to ever change.
