Standard Supply was founded in 1946 as an adhesive distributor. During the early 1950's when people began to air condition their homes, contractors requested that Standard provide adhesive to attach insulation to Kraft paper or foil sheets so they could insulate the walls as they installed air conditioning units. Most contractors had trouble with this process, so Standard Supply started facing insulation in their warehouse in Downtown Dallas. This was the beginning of a philosophy that still exists at Standard Supply today: "Delivering Solutions" to meet our contractor's business needs.
