Gypsum Wholesalers, Inc. was started in 1976 by John Wight, who remains the sole owner and active President.  John saw a need for a reliable source of supply for gypsum wallboard and began delivering product to residential drywall contractors in the Syracuse area with a borrowed pickup truck and trailer.

With customer service as the foundation of John’s success, personnel and equipment were added to service his growing customer base and demand for an ever increasing product line.

In the early 1980’s Gypsum Wholesalers, Inc. relocated to our present address and built a new warehouse with a modest office. The demand for our service continued to grow, and by the mid 1980’s, a second warehouse was added.

Gypsum Wholesalers, Inc. has a unique relationship with Gypsum Express Ltd., a trucking company created and run by John Wight.  Because of our sister company, we are able to direct ship material via tractor trailers and have secured a solid position in supplying large commercial projects throughout the Northeast.

Customer service is still the cornerstone of our success.  Our customers can count on Gypsum Wholesalers, Inc. to supply and deliver building products whenever and wherever it is needed.
