Shepley Wood Products Inc, a three-unit pro dealer of lumber and building materials with locations in Hyannis, Nantucket and Wellfleet, has announced its merger with Kodiak Building Partners of Colorado.
Shepley’s name will stay the same, and company president Tony Shepley will remain in his position along with all other employees, including senior managers at Shepley. No jobs will be lost or outsourced as a result of the sale.
Kodiak is comprised of more than 30 other legacy companies in the building material supply business across the continental U.S. Kodiak maintains a fairly unique to the industry, de-centralized business model in which management and decision-making stay local, and the unique character of each of its member companies is kept in place, as is the staff.
Kodiak brings a wealth of industry experience and the resources of a $2 billion operation which, combined with Shepley’s local market expertise and presence, will produce great synergy, said Shepley.
“We appreciate Kodiak’s sensitivity to local markets and local decision-making to drive best results for customers and employees alike, by keeping business on a very personal level,” he said. “We considered many options while looking for a business partner, and Kodiak really showed themselves to be the obvious choice to maintain and grow the relationships we have created with our customers, our employees, and our community. We are excited for the future, and after 44 years in business, our next chapter opens.”
