About Us

Rubenstein Supply Company was founded during the Great Depression by three brothers, Henry, Morris, and Bob Rubenstein. The Company got its start salvaging plumbing fixtures from their father's building demolition business. Native Oaklanders, they decided to stay local, and built a warehouse at 28th and San Pablo Ave. The brothers built a wholesale plumbing distribution business which they operated together for forty plus years. Henry and Morris retired in 1986. At that time Bob and his son Craig, who joined the company in 1969 after graduating from UCSB, bought Rubenstein Supply. They operated the company together until 2002 when Bob retired, and Craig became the sole owner. Under Craig's leadership, the company has seen tremendous growth over the years.

In 1991 Matt Laiolo joined the company. Matt graduated from Saint Mary's College in 1989 with a B.S.in Business Administration & Economics. He attended Graduate School & coached Baseball at St. Mary's from 1989-1991. Matt is responsible for the hands on day to day operation at all branches and Showroom.

Our Oakland Branch is managed by Gary Winnie. Gary has been with us for over 7 years.  He has over 30 years of plumbing and wholesale experience. In 1995 Rubenstein Supply opened its second branch in San Rafael, Ca. San Rafael is managed by Chris Walther. Chris has been with us for over 6 years and has over 30 years of plumbing wholesale experience. In 2005 Rubenstein Supply opened a branch in San Jose, Ca.
