To better serve Minnesota’s burgeoning construction market, building materials distributor Kodiak Building Partners acquired Simonson Lumber.

With over six operating locations in central Minnesota, Simonson Lumber’s presence will enable Englewood, CO-based Kodiak to meet the escalating demand for housing and construction solutions in the state, company officials said in a June 5 news release.

The partnership “opens new avenues for growth and innovation on multiple fronts,” as Simonson Lumber taps into Kodiak’s resources and expertise to strengthen operations and supplier relationships, officials said.

“Simonson Lumber and its customers will benefit most from Kodiak’s ‘locally led’ mentality,” Simonson Lumber President Eric Borchardt. “This partnership allows us to serve our customers in a way that is unique to our region, while Kodiak’s support system ensures we have everything we need to thrive in a fast-paced market.”

In May, Kodiak also strengthened its northern U.S. mountain presence with an acquisition in Idaho.
