Who We Are…
In 1953 in Sacramento, CA, Fred Anderson opened the doors to his fledgling company, Anderson Lumber. From those humble beginnings, Pacific Coast Building Products (PCBP) was born. Through the following years Fred, and later, Dave Lucchetti, the company’s president since 1978, purchased and founded building products-related businesses. By the time of Fred’s death in 1997, the company had expanded into other cities and states. Today, From its headquarters in Rancho Cordova, CA, PCBP is a holding company for seven building products distribution, manufacturing and contracting companies.
The story of Pacific Coast Building Products, inc. and its family of companies is a testament to the importance of honesty, fairness and a concern for the well-being of others in everyday relationships. Fred Anderson founded his company on three core values: quality products, exceptional service and relationships. We are as committed to those values today as we were in 1953. Much has changed in the years since Fred Anderson began his first lumberyard on a shoestring, but much remains the same. Fred made it a point to get to know his customers. He listened to what they wanted and delivered a little more. He dealt fairly and honestly with people and provided the best quality building products at a fair price. While the company has grown, the culture remains the same. Treat customers, employees and suppliers like family. Develop relationships based on mutual trust and respect. Hire and train the best people for the job.
None of this growth and expansion would have been possible without the scores of talented employees, along with our valued customers and partners who have been with PCBP since the beginning. PCBP is deeply grateful for their confidence and commitment to our organization, over the past 65+ years and into the future.

Epic Plastics: Creating Landscape Edging From Recycled Plastic Bottles
Not unique to others in the Pacific Coast Family of Companies, Epic Plastics has emerged from humble beginnings and is now a leading manufacturer in the landscape industry. Back in 1997, Epic extruded its first Benda Board from recycled milk jugs and shampoo bottles at a very small, single machine plant in Richmond CA. Back in those days, manufacturing and saving a full lift in one day (120 pieces of Benda Board) was quite the achievement! After many years of investing, fine tuning, and unwavering persistence, Epic is now diverting well over 17 million lbs. of waste plastics from international landfills and manufacturing and selling upwards of 20 million feet of recycled plastic landscape edging annually.

In Our Communities
American Heart Association Heart & Stroke Walk 2019-Five Years Strong
In September 2019, Pacific Coast Building Products completed our fifth consecutive year of collaborating with the American Heart Association for their Heart and Stroke Walk. During this time we have seen our very own Ryan Lucchetti chair the walk twice and this year nearly 400 employees, including their family members, participated in our Heart Walks around the country. Together with your help, we have raised thousands of life-saving dollars to support the very important mission of the American Heart Association.
The Heart and Stroke Walks not only bring the local community together for the common goal to combat our nation’s biggest health threats–heart disease and stroke—but also encourages people to take charge of their health and embrace a healthy lifestyle. We hope PCBP’s sponsorship of the Heart Walk will inspire others to make healthy improvements in their physical and mental well-being.READ MORE >>
Throughout the West Coast, all of our subsidiary divisions participated in either the Survivor Mile or the 5K/3.1 Mile Community Heart and Stroke Walk. In the Spring 2019, PABCO Paper started off our year of walks by participating in the Orange County Heart and Stroke Walk at the Anaheim Angels Stadium. On September 14th, Las Vegas, NV held their community walk around Sunset Park. PABCO Gypsum joined with Pacific Supply to walk in the early morning to avoid the Las Vegas heat. On the same day, in Modesto, CA, Basalite participated at Modesto Junior College. On September 28th in California, several Heart Walks were held simultaneously as Alcal/PCBS, Basalite, PABCO, Pacific Supply and PCCI showed our strength with participation in both the Sacramento and Stockton Heart Walks. Two weeks later, PABCO Gypsum-Newark and Alcal-Fremont were in Danville, as well as PABCO Roofing in Tacoma, WA proudly showing ‘PCBP family matters’ at their community heart walks.
Supporting the communities where we live and work is one of Pacific Coast Building Products’ core values. We aim to strengthen neighborhoods and improve the lives of our community members through our support of selected local organizations. Pacific Coast Building Products’ support of the American Heart Association is just one of the many ways we strive to improve our communities.
Millions of people are at risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke, but money from the American Heart Association Heart Walks nationwide help fund innovative research for new treatments, provide programs and services for survivors and their families, and help more of our loved ones lower their risk of heart disease and stroke. Thank you to everyone who participated and more importantly, thank you for your incredible fundraising efforts to help further research, improve quality of care, and save lives.
Thank You to the PCBP AHA Committee and all of our location coaches. For the last five years they have all stepped up and dedicated their time to collaborate with the American Heart Association and spread the word on having a healthy heart.#PCBPFamilyiswhy#EVERYSTEPCOUNTS#HEALTHY4GOOD

SRBX Design Build 2019
Design Build, sponsored by the Sacramento Regional Business Exchange (SRBX), promotes construction career awareness among high school students. It recognizes student achievements while giving the construction industry an opportunity to support schools, students and career technical education programs. High school students experience hands on experience of the construction process and gain first hand knowledge of the construction industry.
Each team is challenged with designing and creating construction documents for a 96 square foot structure. The competition has two categories: The Shed Competition or The Open Construction. Building takes place over 2 days and a panel of architecture and construction professionals from the area serve as judges. Structures are judged on the student's ability to perform all of the necessary functions, from planning and design, scheduling, project management, conduct, craftsmanship, teamwork and the ever important safety.
All materials are provided by SRBX and the community. Both Anderson Lumber and Pacific Coast Building Products provide in kind donations. Schools are able to keep their projects for the school's use or to sell it to fund school projects or the school's construction program. This year's competition included a Japanese tea house, tiny homes for homeless vets, storage sheds to be sold.
