The Evolution of a Family Business


Norfolk Kitchen and Bath’s story started in 1934 when Norfolk Hardware & Home Center was founded By Lena and Benjamin Rosen.  Lena and Benjamin Rosen had immigrated to this country in the early 1900’s.  After settling in the Mattapan area of Boston, Ben began a career as a plumber installing water heaters. He purchased plumbing fittings from local hardware stores.  His entrepreneurial spirit was strong and he began to think about the possibilities of  buying the plumbing fittings and pipe from the manufacturer.  He and Lena opened a small hardware store on Norfolk St. in Mattapan in 1934 and called the store, Norfolk Hardware.

Today the Norfolk Companies consists of Norfolk Hardware & Home Center, Norfolk Kitchen & Bath, and Northeast Cabinet & Counter Tops.  Each of our companies sells products and services that are used in the home improvement industry.  The Norfolk companies are still family owned and operated. Today, Stewart Rosen is at the helm and has helped us grow exponentially since coming into the business in 1984.  His son Benjamin Rosen, named after his great grandfather who founded the company joined the business in 2004.  Today Stewart is the President of the company and Benjamin is the Vice President. If history has a way of repeating itself, Norfolk has a lot more growth in store.
