Company Overview

Here's Our Story

Our History

Commonwealth Building Supplies Ltd was formed in March 1973, by the (late) legendary building contractor Mr. Carl G Treco. CBS started out with six staff members and two major distributorships - Kawneer Architectural Aluminum Products and Steelcraft Hollow Metal Doors and Frames. Both are still represented by CBS some 47 years later.

In the late seventies, Carl's son John and his nephew Brent Burrows were given the opportunity to join the business. Today, they are both shareholders in the company and serve as President & Managing Director and General Manager & Vice President, respectively. During the past 45 years CBS has seen tremendous growth, and is now the nation's leading supplier and installer of Architectural Building products in both the commercial and residential markets. CBS Bahamas is also the nation's largest Home Improvement retailer, and boasts the largest online catalog and most complete e-commerce shopping platform in The Bahamas.

CBS Bahamas has expanded as both a retailer and contract supplier. Boasting a new 30,000sqft Home Center, CBS takes pride in offering a variety of specialized departments such as Lawn & Garden, Cleaning Supplies, Housewares, Electrical, Plumbing, Windows & Doors, Tools, etc. Additionally, CBS is proud to represent new and exciting brands such as Kohler, Pratt & Lambert, U.S. Cabinet Cabinetry, Valspar Paints, and Mohawk; offering a wide selection of high-quality products to outfit your home or commercial building in all areas.
