Kodiak Building Partners, Denver, Co., has expanded into Wyoming with its acquisition of 44-year-old Jenkins Lumber & Hardware, Alpine, Wy., weeks after purchasing 116-year-old Builders Alliance, Bellingham, Wa.

The former owners of both businesses—president Dave Jenkins at Jenkins Lumber and co-presidents Dave Orem and Mike Werner at Builders Alliance—will remain in their positions, while becoming part of Kodiak’s ownership group.

Jenkins noted, “I look forward to having additional peers to lean on and bounce ideas off of from time to time. We at Jenkins have been successful on our own, but fully expect to flourish even further under the Kodiak umbrella.”

With the deals, Kodiak now operates 78 locations across 14 states.
