About 2x4 basics®


Going back to 1953, our founders used the concept of “The Image of Difference.” It was a simple yet powerful idea that encouraged us to make everything we do better than it had been done before. Over the course of seven decades, Hopkins Manufacturing Corporation has grown into a global company with market leading positions in a number of product categories. Yet across all our locations and products, it is the thread of this philosophy that holds together everything we have become and everything we do.

The 2×4 Basics® family of products was acquired by Hopkins® in April 2012. This line of products helps consumers build sturdy, durable, customized storage and organization solutions and lawn and garden furniture. Hopkins® continues to uphold the high standards in quality that do-it-yourselfers have come to expect and value from 2×4 Basics® products.

All 2×4 Basics® products are made exclusively in the U.S.A., molded in-house. We use only the highest quality structural resin for our brackets and heavy-gauge steel for our shed kits. Top to bottom quality control and testing takes place as the products are meticulously built to ensure your kit will not only be quick and easy to build, but will also last the test of time. These highly engineered products have the consumer in mind, making it easy by eliminating miters or angles―only straight cuts are needed. The brackets also have pre-drilled holes to make sure your boards line up every time eliminating guess work. To simplify it even further, only 2×4 lumber is needed for most projects and you can customize your projects to any length, up to 8ft.

Hopkins®, with the 2×4 Basics® brand, continue to expand the line and offer the best DIY products on the market. See all of the products Hopkins has to offer: HopkinsMfg.com
