TAL Holdings, Vancouver, Wa., has agreed to acquire five-unit Idaho dealer Orofino Builders Supply, including five locations in Grangeville, Kamiah, Lewiston and Orofino, Id.
“I am thrilled to welcome Orofino to the TAL family of brands,” said Jason Blair, CEO of TAL Holdings. “Orofino’s values, culture and emphasis on community are a great fit with TAL. We could not be happier to join forces with such a well-established company and expand our presence in the Idaho market.”
Last year TAL entered Idaho, as well as Montana, when it bought four Badger Building Centers.
“Finding the right partner was very important to us,” said fourth-generation owner Will Crockett. “TAL understands the importance of upholding our legacy while at the same time investing in continued growth. We are excited to benefit from the resources and scale of a larger organization.”
The chain was founded in 1928 by his great-grandfather, Oren Crockett.
The yards are expected to open as part of the TAL family on April 11. Orofino’s individual locations currently operate under several names. In the coming months, all five will transition to the “Best Built Builders Supply” banner.
“The change, which was initiated by Will and his team before acquisition discussions began, will unify the brand and create consistency for employees and customers,” Blair said. “We will continue to use the Windows, Doors & Store branding for design centers as a sub-brand of Best Built Builders Supply.”
TAL currently operates 19 locations including Badger Building Center, Bayview Building Supply of Elma, Browne’s Home Center, Gerretsen Building Supply, Lake Chelan Building Supply, Marson & Marson Lumber, Midway Building Supply, Mount Vernon Building Center, and Tum-A-Lum Lumber.
