The company was founded by Joseph O’ Sullivan and Martin O’ Reilly.
These long time neighborhood friends, each having construction backgrounds and an Irish connection, formulated the idea of building a better sheetrock form.
Joseph, a journeyman carpenter, had been working in his family’s business (framing / sheetrock) for 20 years. Martin, arriving from Ireland in 2002, had been a CMC programmer and machinist in his native country.
Because of Joe’s extensive background in the sheetrock business, he noticed that the industry’s direction into prefabrication was moving quickly. He approached Martin about starting a company that would build better and stronger sheetrock forms.
With Martin’s expertise in machinery, they designed a machine that would give them precise factory cuts, corners and edges.
They opened a small manufacturing plant in the Bronx and have since moved into a larger space. Along with setting up an office in Astoria and securing numerous accounts they are on their way to building ROCKFROMS USA into a powerhouse company.
