Featured Member of the Month – A&B Building and Supplies
Our Featured Member for this month is A&B Buildings and Supplies, the construction business of Garland Enterprises Incorporated, located on East Ridge Road in Sheridan. This first article will focus on a brief description of the 20-year history that brought Garland Enterprises and A&B Buildings to where they are today.
Garland Enterprises was formed on June 1, 1992, as a real estate development and construction firm owned by William H. (Bill) and Donna Garland. Their first projects were in the Sparrow Hawk subdivision, to supply a growing need for building lots in the city. They initially purchased 12 undeveloped lots and constructed the water, sewer, streets and other infrastructure, followed by the purchase of Night Hawk Court, then another 36 acres to develop larger building sites known as “The Summit at Sparrow Hawk,” now one of the premier neighborhoods in Sheridan. All of these sites were completely sold by 2001.
Looking forward as a business, Garland Enterprises purchased the assets of A&B Buildings and Supplies in 2000 – a business that had originally started in Billings and had since relocated to Sheridan. At the time, A&B Buildings and Supplies was located at 330 E. Grinnell (property later sold to Whitney Benefits) and built mostly smaller buildings, building shells, storage units, agricultural buildings, and suburban buildings. The next year Garland Enterprises purchased 10 acres on East Ridge Road and started development of East Ridge Industrial Park, easily accessible from the I-90 / 5th St. exchange, and also relocated the A&B Buildings business to that industrial park.
They’ve now expanded the industrial park to 26 acres, with a 10-unit, “high energy efficient” condo/storage/small business block (some units currently available for sale or rent), as well as 15 lots available for sale ranging from over .5 to 2.5 acres (with city services and ACT fiber optics).
Since the inception, Garland Enterprises and its A&B Building and Supplies business have been a general contractor and/or developer on projects ranging from basic roof replacements to the total construction of large industrial parks.
Give them a call to find out more. You can find Bill at A&B Buildings and Supplies, 82 E. Ridge Road, or by calling (307) 672-9001. Or check out the website at www.abbuildings.com.
