King Bros has been a family run business
since the first brothers, Russell and
Kenneth King, bought the Feed Mill in
1956 during a sheriff's sale. Originally a
Feed and Supply Store, the company
supplied feed, coal, lime, and bagged
fertilizer. A railroad track ran directly
beside the property and supplies were
brought in by rail.
In 1958 Marlene Reibel married Russell King and joined her husband working for the company. In 1962, Russell and Marlene bought Kenneth and his
wife's share of the company, and became the sole
owners of King Bros. Feed & Supply.
It was also during this time, in 1962, that Russell
and Marlene decided to expand the company into
the Ready Mix Concrete business, due to supply
and demand of building materials in the
In the late 60s, King Bros began the development
of two car washes. The first in Bristolville
Township, and the second in East Orwell.
Starting in the early 70s the King Bros. expanded
into septic installation and excavation. Over the years, King Bros. has become the most knowledgeable and experienced installer in Trumbull County.
In 1982, the company expanded once again in the bulk fertilizer business, and the selling of fuel oil and adding a more modern tipple for concrete batching.
Although King Bros. had always delivered driveway
material, the variety of aggregates had grown with the
company. King customers especially appreciated the
service of having their material tailgated at no extra
charge. Storage units were also built and brought into
the company giving local residents the convenience of
not having to travel out of the community to store
1985 was a tragic year for the King Bros. In December,
Russell King died of a massive heart attack. Through
the years, Marlene and Russ had become an amazing
team along with the help of their staff. They enjoyed
serving their customers and working with their
employees. Through this difficult time, there were
many offers to buy the family business, but Marlene
stood strong in her decision to continue what she and Russell had started. The King family was supported by the staff, many of whom still work for King Bros. today. Rex, the youngest son, stepped into the huge shoes that his father had left behind at the age of 19.
In 1986, King Bros incorporated a hardware store into its franchise. In 1988, Rex married Sis Bates and together they continued the family tradition, later bringing their two boys into the company.
Having a hard work mentality, starting usually before
sunrise until after dark, and believing in the rewards that
good customer service can bring, King Bros has grown
throughout the years, and continues to be successful into
the future. The business has expanded over the years
from the original Feed and Supply Store, to additional
Excavation, Ready Mix Concrete, Hardware and Building
Supplies, Storage, and Septic. For the past 60 years, King
Bros. has carried many titles and through it all, we have
been supported by local communities. The company
started with one employee and now employs around thirty,
all of which greets our customers with a smile. We don't believe in sub contracting our work out, King Bros. has literally hundreds of years of experience combined.
We are proud of what we do and that's why our
company's name is King Bros. Over the years we
have built friendships along with new homes, we
have said goodbye to old friends and look forward
to meeting new friends. King Bros. deems it's
success to many long hard working hours,
dedicated employee's and community support,
and for that we say "THANK—YOU"
