Swinamer’s Home Building Centre opened in 1954 when Russell Swinamer and partners realized the need for a building supply and manufacturing outlet in Windsor, Nova Scotia. At that time the company was a contractor-based business supplying local builders with all the materials necessary to complete their projects. They were also involved in manufacturing various types of wood products.
Over the years Swinamer’s Home Building Centre ownership was passed down through the family up until 2000
when Ernie Crandall purchased the business from John Swinamer and Ches Roberts. Manager Brian MacDonald, changed the company’s approach by re-establishing a retail business.
In 2010 Brian and Cherie MacDonald purchased the business from the Crandall family. In 2011 they joined the Home Hardware buying group. Brian and Cherie look forward to serving you with top quality products and service for all your building and renovation needs.
