Kodiak Building Partners announced Sept. 6 its acquisition of Denver-based Western Interior Supply. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1985, Western Interior Supply is a distributor of standard acoustical ceilings, specialty acoustical ceilings and walls, and decorative ceiling and wall products for Denver commercial contractors, builders, and developers.
“Our team at Western has become our company’s greatest asset over the years, and I appreciate Kodiak’s emphasis on prioritizing our team to continue to make decisions at the local level for our growing market and industry,” Western Interior Supply general manager Kim Stafford said. Stafford will continue to operate Western Interior Supply as general manager following the acquisition, according to a news release.
“The acquisition of Western Interior Supply marks our first acquisition in the gypsum space since 2017,” Kodiak CEO Steve Swinney said. “This is a bold strategy with headwinds in the single-family market, and we are confident it will pay off for Kodiak and expand our gypsum-related offerings along the Colorado Front Range market.”
Based just south of Denver in Highlands Ranch, Kodiak Building Partners was founded in 2011. It has since acquired over 103 locations that serve as general contractors, homebuilders, sub-contractors, remodelers and consumers across 23 states. Kodiak ranked as the No. 10 Building Materials/Construction Distributor on Modern Distribution Management’s 2022 Top Distributor list.
