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.
