Live Oak Construction Supply, Inc. began in 1986 when Phil and Joanne Fraizer purchased an existing business known as Oakes Hardware. The company had a reputation for having “hard to find” items and they had a solid customer base. Oakes Hardware was also known as a company with knowledgeable employees whom were committed to helping their customers solve problems.
Live Oak Construction Supply, Inc., formerly Live Oak Hardware & Supply, Inc., is currently owned and operated by Phil and Joanne’s two sons, Mark and Jeff Fraizer. With backgrounds in sales, marketing, retail merchandising, and management, both remain active with day to day operations and collectively have over forty years experience in the industrial and construction supply industry.
Our business is primarily broken into two categories. The first is our core business geared towards industrial clients and municipalities. Our second category is the construction market, with heavy emphasis towards all facets of concrete construction.
Today, Live Oak Construction Supply, Inc. continues to grow. We have been blessed over the years with outstanding employees, vendors, and customers. We invest in our employees by providing education and training. We give back to our community by providing financial help to many organizations. We have many customers and vendors whom have supported us for over 20 years, and for that, we are thankful.
Live Oak Construction Supply’s mission statement is simple, “To stay abreast with the latest technology in tools, supplies, and equipment so that we can partner with our customers and help them provide quality work in the most efficient manner, and therefore realize a profit by helping others profit.” We are a company founded on basic fundamentals, a company with integrity, and a company that is excited to be where we are today and looking forward to the future.
