Nathan B. Handy founded the N. B. Handy Company in 1891 as a supplier of metals, metal fabricating machinery and hardware materials for the roofing and general sheet metal trades around Lynchburg, Virginia. As metal was a prevalent roofing material in those times, a prevalence of sheet metal expertise lay with the roofing community.  

With World War I and the Great Depression, N. B. Handy Company continued to grow, through the 1900Ââ€Ã¢„¢s on its way to becoming a regional supplier of materials through much of western Virginia, West Virginia, and western North Carolina; especially through the 50's and 60's when it opened another warehouse in Roanoke, Virginia. In the 70's began an expansion mode - the establishment of locations in Raleigh and Greensboro, North Carolina and Richmond, Virginia and a steel-processing center in Lynchburg, Virginia was also established in 1974. The 1980Ââ€Ã¢„¢s witnessed further growth at Norfolk, Virginia, Charlotte, North Carolina and Greenville, South Carolina where 3 more locations were established. The company continued its successful run in the 90's, establishing facilities in Capitol Heights and Baltimore, Maryland, Atlanta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina. In 2003, Carlisle SynTec awarded the exclusive rep/distributor territory for Northern and Central Florida to N. B. Handy and a location was established in Orlando, Florida.

The company currently has 13 full-service distribution centers throughout the Mid Atlantic and Southeast which augment their premier metals service center and corporate headquarters in Lynchburg, Virginia. It offers the combined energies of over 360 employees and is guided by a customer-centered philosophy, striving to create positive impacts in the communities in which it is located. N.B. Handy helps achieve success for both installers and manufacturers by bringing them closer to their ultimate consumer and providing a repository of product information and experience.
