 Bourget Brothers
(1947-    )

The Bourget Brothers have been selling minerals, masonry materials, jewelry and lapidary supplies in Santa Monica since 1947. The company was started with an initial investment of $300 by brothers Henry, Lawrence and Leo Bourget who bought a concrete manufacturing plant in Santa Monica. The company became a success and in 1950, the brothers expanded their product line to include natural building stone, plumbing, masonry, brick and landscaping supplies. The company also saw the addition of tools and hardware in the 1950's resulting in a complete building materials supply house. In 1964 Henry retired and sold his interest to younger brothers, Leonard and John and brother-in-law Roy Kinslow. Leonard and John are still very active in day to day operations. In 1984, the brothers purchased Coast Flagstone Company in West Los Angeles and moved it to a new home in Santa Monica in 1992. Renamed as the Bourget Flagstone Co., its uniqueness as a design showroom ushered in a renewed interest in natural stone throughout the area. In recent years, Bourget Bros. has added a tile showroom at its main location, and in 2005 a lumber department was added.
