Clydeco Building Supplies began modestly in 1975. The humble beginnings of the business consisted of a small wooden shed, a shade tree, and a desire to provide reinforcing steel to contractors and home owners in Utah. After constructing his own home, B. Clyde Gammell, founder of Clydeco Building Supplies, sold his excess rebar to a local contractor. Through this seemingly insignificant event an idea was born. Clyde inquired with some steel wholesalers in Salt Lake City, Utah, as to the possibility of buying more rebar with the intention of reselling it to local contractors. An agreement was reached and the rebar was made available. Clyde borrowed his father-in-laws farm truck and drove 50 miles north to Salt Lake City to retrieve as much rebar as the truck would hold. With an inventory, Clyde called contractors at night after returning home from his current employment. As soon as the supply of steel was depleted, Clyde made another trip to the wholesaler for more material.
