Culpeper Wood Preservers, Culpeper, Va., has acquired H. M. Stauffer & Sons of Leola, Pa.
“We could not be more excited about this acquisition and the diversity that adding H. M. Stauffer & Sons brings to our company. They have been a leader in multiple facets of our industry and we look forward to expanding our product offerings,” said Jonathan Jenkins, president of Culpeper. “The principles and values of H. M. Stauffer & Sons coincide with what we believe in at Culpeper Wood Preservers. The combination of these two companies strengthens our ability to provide greater value and service to our customers and expands our geographic reach.”
H.M. Stauffer president Ray Bures added, “Through the years, our customers have come to expect top-quality products and unparalleled service. Our product mix of treated lumber and structural building components has always been a winning combination. We are excited to continue our long history of success by joining forces with the Culpeper team.”
With the acquisition, Culpeper now operates 17 treating plants in the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Midwest and Southeast.
A fourth-generation family business founded in 1890, H.M. Stauffer was initially a coal, lumber, and feed supplier servicing Lancaster, Pa., and began supplying trusses and wall panels to customers in the 1960s. The company added wood-preservation capacities in 1975. In the 1980s, the company added a second component manufacturing location in Myerstown, Pa.
