The Original Coast
Coast has been a family-owned and operated business since 1945, with 2020 marking our 75th anniversary. The original Coast owner, Tom Black, returned home from WW II, as so many young men did, looking for opportunity. He quickly saw the need for a good glass shop, and in 1945 started Coast Glass in downtown Santa Barbara. Coast Glass operated for decades as a trusted name in windows and doors in the local community.
Flooring Meets Windows
In 2004 Ryan Reed returned to his hometown of Carpinteria, looking for opportunity. He saw the need for quality custom flooring and, in 2005, opened Reed Floors in downtown Carpinteria.
In 2015 Ryan saw the next opportunity; to provide homeowner and contractor clients with custom flooring and windows from the same location. He bought the Coast Glass business, and Coast Supply Co. was born.
Coast Supply Expands with Home Furnishings
As business ramped up, Ryan’s wife, Aimee, realized they could help clients style their homes by offering quality home furnishings and décor. Aimee launched the home division of Coast Supply, curating unique finds from around the world.
The Future of Coast Supply Co.
Today, things have really grown from that old glass shop, but the Coast principles remain the same; great value products that last a lifetime, the most knowledgeable people in our trades, and that old-time genuine customer service on every job.
We look back on our history with great pride and look forward to serving our California communities for 75 more!
