OneSource for Builders and Architects
If you asked a 14-year old Chris Dias on his first day in the lumber business where he would be 40 years later, he likely would have told you“right here”. “Right here” is SBS OneSource, where he is President and Owner. SBS OneSource started as Specialty Builders’ Supply in 2001 in Brewster, MA as a supplier of exterior products for the home building industry on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. Chris was the only employee. Fast forward 19 years later to 2020, where Chris heads a team of over 50 professionals who cover not only the Cape and the Vineyard but most of MA with a wide range of home building products that include many exclusive window and door lines.
How did Chris know that this is where he would currently be? It’s because Chris is intensely focused with a business physique that comes from working hard, not working out. Everything has a purpose and leads to the next level of success. Chris’ larger than life personality has always made it easy to build relationships but the work that goes into maintaining and growing those relationships both personally and professionally is his legacy. He has instilled in each and every person at SBS to always find the way to say “yes”to a request. He doesn’t just say it, he lives it, and always sets the example.
SBS One Source was born out of a focus on providing architects with industry leading products to specify and providing builders the flexibility and support that they need from a supplier. From the original office and warehouse space in Brewster, SBS has expanded to include an extremely unique Window and Door Showroom in Pembroke to a full-service Lumber Yard in Vineyard Haven. Architectural products that builders appreciate all supported by a team of gifted people who are committed to both.
The strength of SBS is the unique personnel who execute the “Say Yes” mantra. In theWindow and Door Division, Marc Lima is one of the most detail oriented fenestration experts you could find. He has intimate knowledge of the Martha’s Vineyard market and wears his total commitment to customer satisfaction on his sleeve. Freddy Maguire is a well-seasoned 25 year + window & door salesperson who can properly identify the correct product for any type of project and make it happen. Narcisa Dervishevikj is in her 3rd full year of Window and Door Sales and has broken all SBS records for success in a short time frame. Her easy and friendly demeanor with her keen sense of understanding products and projects helps her to quickly develop trust and confidence and then she delivers. The window and door division is growing at a rapid rate and has recently added sales professionals Betsy Maillet, Christine Ayotte and Dominic Blad.
The SBS team is very diverse and unique, and while the vast majority are local to Massachusetts, in keeping with current work environments, some work remotely from different states. Greg Persbacker, who was the second employee of SBS (after Chris), has built his second career leading the team (he was in NYC finance) while keeping the ship steady from his home office in Eastern New York. Andrea Bohmfalk, the heartbeat of Sales and Service, handles her significant position from Texas. From the Cape, Mike Blatz makes shipping and delivery happen every hour of every day.
Kelly Roy spends time on both the Cape and Vineyard managing purchasing & inventories of millwork and building supplies and team leading. While looking after the fastest growing division, Windows and Door Architectural and Sales Manager, Denny Giantomasi splits time from his home office in Central New York and on the ground in Massachusetts. Regardless of where the work is being done, it is always executed with Dias’ “Customer First” mentality: Say Yes!
