About Westside Building Material





Our goal is to be the premier source of supply for interior/exterior wall, ceiling systems and related construction products in the markets we serve.





Our mission is to "DO IT RIGHT". It is our commitment to deal with our employees, customers and suppliers in a fair, honest and professional manner.





We are a family owned business started by Beulah and Evan Peckham in 1935 to serve the lath and plaster trades in the West Los Angeles area. The business survived throughout World War II and in the following years continued to flourish. Beulah and Evan’s son Virgil took over active management of the company in 1946. As business continued to grow, a branch yard was opened in Anaheim in 1953. Upon the sudden death of Virgil, his son Richard returned from the Navy in 1966 to take over the management of the company. 


Westside still remains a family owned and service oriented business. Today, in addition to our Anaheim yard, we independently own and operate, facilities in Oakland, Hesperia, Las Vegas, Chatsworth, San Diego, National City, Lancaster, Fresno and Santa Maria. Bill Peckham, son of Richard, is now the fourth generation actively managing the business.





Our people are our most important asset. We have a dedicated group of skilled, professional and reliable employees. The average term of employment at Westside is over 10 years, while several current employees have worked over 30 years. This experience allows us to provide peace of mind, knowing that we will get the job done quickly and accurately.





We pride ourselves on our reputation for integrity. We pay our bills on time and maintain good credit relationships with our suppliers. Our loyal customer base relies on us to provide quality building material at competitive prices. The ability to consistently deliver product when and where our customers need it, is unparalleled. 





The goal is to continue expanding and improving our business. We will continue striving to exceed expectations. 



 "...Thank you for the great job you and your forces have done for us on this huge project.  At around 750,000 SQ. feet of floor space, this was a massive undertaking for all involved on this project.  I am glad to say that with your efforts to ensure that materials were on time, we were able to keep our schedule dates..."
