Atlas formed RedBuilt with the acquisition of the commercial division of Trus Joist from Weyerhaeuser in 2009. Over the next 14 years, the company became an industry leader in the engineering, design and manufacturing of proprietary wood-based structural solutions serving the low-rise commercial construction market. The deal is anticipated to close in the first quarter of 2024.
RedBuilt and Hampton Lumber are united by their roots in the Pacific Northwest and shared commitment to their people, communities and sustainability. Hampton Lumber is a fourth-generation family-owned company with operations dating back to 1942 when the company’s original sawmill in Willamina, Oregon was purchased to supply its lumber business in Tacoma, Washington. Today, Hampton’s 1,700 employees operate ten sawmills across Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.
RedBuilt’s skilled team of more than 400 associates deliver nationwide sales and support out of four manufacturing plants in Chino, Ca.; Delaware, Oh.; and Stayton and Hillsboro, Or., and four design centers in Boise, Chino, Hillsboro and Delaware, Oh.
“The decision to conclude our extraordinary partnership with the team at RedBuilt is bittersweet. The journey over more than 14 years to build the company in partnership with Atlas operating partners Tom Denig, Bill Corbin and Kurt Liebich and current CEO Don Schwabe has been long and rewarding, but the time is right to transition RedBuilt to great new partners in Hampton Lumber,” said Atlas co-founder and managing partner Andrew Bursky. “We wish Hampton and our good friends at RedBuilt every success.”
Hampton CEO Randy Schillinger added, “RedBuilt is a leader in wood-based light-commercial framing solutions and we’re excited to welcome this innovative company into the Hampton family. Building on over 80 years in the lumber and forest management business, this acquisition complements our existing operations and propels Hampton into the impactful world of value-added wood products design and manufacturing. RedBuilt has a rich history, a strong leadership team, and a skilled workforce. As a subsidiary company, RedBuilt will have our full support as it continues to deliver leading-edge products and building systems and opens up new and important opportunities in green building solutions.”
“We are forever grateful for the unwavering support from Atlas and its operating partners and are delighted to be joining the Hampton family. We share the same core values – safety, people, communities, and a true passion for what we do. This move will provide both businesses with exciting new opportunities to expand our service and product offerings,” said Don Schwabe, CEO of RedBuilt.
