A Letter From Ed...

Welcome to Collins Supply! As you browse through our website, you will quickly notice that our product line includes only a few types of items: PVC edgebanding, wood edgebanding, veneer sheets, hot melt adhesives and FastCap products. I choose to carry a limited and specific range of supplies so that you can expect that our knowledgeable staff can answer any of your questions about finding the right product or color match for your project. You want to focus on your project, not your supplies. Leave that part to us. I pride our company on being value driven, and there is an intrinsic value to helping you succeed. This philosophy has proven successful for me in my 40 years of industry experience, including my 21 years as owner of Collins Supply.


As corporate citizens in the woodoworking industry, respect for the environment plays an important role in our business decisions. This begins with ethical sourcing. We choose to buy from North American sources whenever possible and ask each of our veneer suppliers to be FSC certified.Our honesty and dedication to a sustainable, high quality and legally sourced product is as important to me as delivering a quality, finished product is to you. 


From one business owner to another, we know that there is no magic formula to success. There is just hard work, dedication to the craft and suppliers you can view as partners and members of your team. I hope that you'll consider making Collins Supply part of your team - and give us the opportunity to exceed your expectations.
