Over time and experience we understand what works and what doesn’t and we understand that time is money. We make a point to do things the best way possible and expedite each customer’s needs in an efficient manner. Each member of our office and counter staff has over 30 years experience in the business. Regardless if it’s a commercial or a residential contractor need, or even a do-it yourselfer project, Fortune Gypsum can help.
Fifty years ago, Joe Fortunato, Sr. saw a vision of opening a drywall and building material supply yard. He, who himself was in the drywall installation business at the time, came to the conclusion that our area needed a premier building material supply yard. At that time materials were tough to come by and drywall wasn’t necessarily readily available in southern New Jersey. After doing a little research, (doing your homework as Big Joe would say), he and his wife B.J. opened a small garage type warehouse on Fire road in Egg Harbor Township just down the street from where Fortune Gypsum is located today.
Many years of hard work and challenges lead to the creation of what Fortune Gypsum is today. A working relationship with local contractors residentially and commercially since the 60’s, as well as being the premier building material supplier for the Atlantic City casino industry from back in the day to what it is today!
