BIP's Homewood Lumber Adds Seattle Dealer
(Feb. 28, 2017) Building Industry Partners’ Homewood Holdings division has acquired pro dealer Evergreen Lumber, Port Orchard, Wa.
Founded in 1939, Evergreen serves local, regional and national homebuilders and contractors, as well as DIYers throughout the greater Seattle and Puget Sound markets, from its Port Orchard yard and nearby door and trim facility.
With the close of the deal, former Evergreen Lumber owner and president Jeff Swan is retiring after 50 years with the business, but will remain an advisor and shareholder. Keith Elledge, who has worked for Evergreen for the past 22 years, will continue as vice president.
The facilities join Sacramento, Ca.-based Homewood’s three branches in California, and the company will continue to seek additional pro dealers in the Pacific Northwest to partner with or acquire.
