Kodiak Building Partners acquires AO, Inc.

Kodiak Building Partners purchased substantially all the assets of AO, Inc., a Dallas based fabricator and distributor of doors, frames and hardware to commercial contractors for the office build-out market.

The move brings Denver, Colorado-based Kodiak deeper into Texas, and follows acquisitions of Gulf & Basco and Factory Builder Stores. 

“We are very excited about having the AO team join forces with us,” said Steve Swinney, Kodiak president. “Their expertise in serving the market for both new office facilities and tenant improvement work fits into our diverse approach to U.S. construction markets.” 

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Kevin Skaggs, founder and owner of AO added” “After over twelve years of nurturing and growing AO into a leader in this market, I’m pleased to see that this transaction offers a smooth transition for our AO team, our customers and our suppliers."

Founded in 2011, Kodiak ranks 42nd on the recent HCN Top 200 Pro Dealer Scoreboard.

The company is fabricator and distributor of building products with four locations in Colorado, eight locations in Texas, and one location in Boston serving commercial and residential contractors, builders and sub-contractors.

Kodiak Chairman and CEO, Paul Hylbert, said: “This acquisition marks another step in the growth of Kodiak and our growth in the Texas market,” said Kodiak Chairman and CEO Paul Hylbert. “With Gulf & Basco, Factory Builder Stores, and now AO, serving all the major markets, we’re continuing to invest in one of the fastest growing states in the country.”
