In 1946, Garth Webb formed Farmers Supply Company in Heflin, Alabama. The company started with seed, fertilizer, and hardware as the prime business, then ventured into ready mix concrete, building materials, sand, and gravel. Dedication to the customer’s needs has been our guiding principle from the start. Current owner, Phil Webb, bought the company from his father, Bobby, in 1980. Since then, Webb has grown to offer more than just concrete and building materials adding the flooring division in 2006. We have expanded to serve our customers with all materials necessary to complete a project– from the foundation up.
We proudly serve six locations in East Central Alabama– Heflin, Oxford, Pell City, Centre, Roanoke, and Birmingham. We also serve their surrounding areas including Gadsden and parts of West Georgia. Our showrooms give customers the opportunity to experience our products firsthand.
Although most people know us from our ready mix business, there is much more to Webb than just concrete. We also have building materials, paint, hardware, flooring, home finishing products, and much more. This is why we are your complete source for building!
At Webb Concrete & Building Materials, we pledge to become a valued business partner by providing the best quality products at a competitive price, delivered in a timely manner by an experienced, attentive and service-minded team.
