We have multiple yard locations and hire professional, knowledgeable, customer-oriented staff.

Our History

Robert N. Karpp Company was started in 1979 by Robert (Bob) N. Karpp with the goal of providing superior customer service to drywall contractors. It began in a small warehouse in South Boston with just a few employees, a pickup truck, and some slightly used boom trucks. Bob’s son Rob joined the company in 1980 and, together, they grew Robert N. Karpp Company into the largest independent drywall supply yard in the Boston area.

The company continued to grow and welcomed Bob’s grandson, Bobby, in 2008 after he graduated from college. We now have three generations working together to deliver the best products and customer service in the area, and have recently become part of the GMS family. Today, Robert N. Karpp Company services all of Massachusetts, all of Rhode Island, southern New Hampshire, southern Maine, and Connecticut.

Our People

We are proud to be a family-oriented business. Our company is run by three generations of family (Bob, Rob and Bobby) and also employs three daughters, two sons-in-law, and two grandchildren. Many of our employees have worked at Robert N. Karpp Company for over 10 years, and some have been with us for 25 years or more. In fact, the first employee we hired in 1979 is still working for the company today.

We have a number of employees who started their careers in delivery and warehouse positions and later advanced into management. This is a testament to the great culture and work environment that Robert N. Karpp Company provides. We really define our employees as “family” and truly care about the health and welfare of everyone who works for us.

All of Robert N. Karpp Company’s employees pride themselves in being hard working, safe, and professional in their key roles. They are the backbone of our success as a company.
