Brock's was founded by Maurice and Anne Brock in 1961. It all started innocently enough as the brainstorm of Maurice; his idea was to sell plywood in an old truck garage that was 575 square feet on a property next to his house. He eventually added 2 x 4's and nails and business began to boom. Maurice's hard work, fair prices and quality service turned the business into a successful enterprise.
