Family Owned and Operated Since 1988

Our History

Humble Beginnings

Colonial Construction Materials, Inc. was founded by Timothy Branin in 1988. Equipped with a few trucks and a small installation crew, Tim and his team started supplying and installing geotextiles and erosion control products to contractors in Virginia.

A few years later, Tim’s brother Tommy and his mother Nancy joined in, making Colonial Construction Materials a true family business.

A Developing Industry

Over time, Colonial Construction Materials expanded to meet the demands of an evolving industry. An increase in environmental regulation correlated to an increase in construction regulation, specifically related to stormwater runoff and erosion control. Construction permitting and site inspections became stricter and the demand for effective products to control silt and sediment increased.

Response to Industry Changes

In response, Colonial vertically integrated operations and began manufacturing several site work products. We also expanded our geographical influence by supplying distributors from the Caribbean to Pennsylvania with environmental construction products.

In 2002, Colonial Construction Materials moved its headquarters to Oilville, Virginia. The 40,000 square foot facility includes a 6-acre yard which provides greater storage and manufacturing capabilities. The strategic location sits just west of Richmond, Virginia and has quick access to major interstates that connect us to the Mid-Atlantic region.

Colonial Construction Materials also has a branch office in Virginia Beach. This location includes a sales office, warehouse and large stock yard. The Virginia Beach location services customers in Southeast Virginia and the Carolinas.
