Kodiak Building Partners reported that it has acquired Alpine Appliance Center.

The move was effective Feb. 1 and marks the 27th acquisition in Kodiak’s 10 years of business. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Alpine Appliance Center is a Colorado home appliance supplier with locations in Avon and Basalt,  catering to homeowners, architects, and home builders in the Vail Valley and Roaring Fork Valley. The company has more than 25 employees.

With their in-house factory-authorized technicians and installers, Alpine has become the market leader by both installing and servicing the 30 brands that they offer, according to Kodiak.

Eric Boylan, president of Alpine Appliance Center, purchased what was a small appliance company in 2001. He recognized that the common weakness among his competitors was service.

Throughout the growth and re-branding of the company, Alpine’s ability to fix customers’ problems, or service a product, was viewed as an opportunity and not a headache. 

Following the acquisition, the company is rebranding itself under Kodiak’s Specialty Appliance banner. 

Kodiak acquired Specialty Appliance in 2018. The division has five locations and more than 120 employees.

Boylan will continue to lead Specialty Appliances’ Mountain division and report to Greg Ulvedal and Kirk Dryden, co-presidents of Specialty Appliance.

Ulvedal and Dryden both welcome the Alpine folks to the Specialty and Kodiak family and said, “Alpine’s work ethic and strategies are perfectly aligned to complement what  Specialty Appliance is already doing in Colorado. Kodiak can provide Alpine the support that will  help them achieve their future ambition goals, and we are looking forward to being a part of their  next chapter.”

By joining the Kodiak family, Boylan said he looks forward to the extra layers of support that will be provided. 

“This acquisition will result in more opportunities for the growth of Alpine,  which means more opportunities for my employees…my extended family,”  Boylan said. 

Based in Highlands Ranch, Colo., Kodiak Building Partners operates 85 locations in 20 states.
