Servicing the Mid-Atlantic region, Tri-Supply & Equipment is dedicated to fulfilling all material and equipment jobsite demands. Our extensive knowledge in the construction industry is an invaluable asset extended to our customers with every transaction.

Founded by Keith Baker, David Curran, and Neal Messick, with over 85 years of combined experience in the industry, Tri-Supply & Equipment is proud to be a locally owned and operated business.

By 2006 Tri-Supply & Equipment grew to four locations in three different states. Today, Tri-Supply & Equipment is proud to offer its customers combined generations of ownership to continue on the legacy of what truly is a locally owned and operated family business.
