Chaney Enterprises launches BuilderUp

BY Andy Carlo

Chaney Enterprises has created a new pro dealer division featuring three locations in Maryland.

BuilderUp, a new building supplies and services division, has been formed by the merger of Dunkirk Supply and The Concrete Store.

Materials and services available at the new BuilderUp include custom truss manufacturing and steel fabrication (I-beams, lolly columns, wrought iron rails and welding services), crane services, engineered wood products, concrete supplies, hardscapes, doors, windows, lumber and general tools and supplies for professional builders of all sizes.

BuilderUp operates from locations in Owings and Waldorf, Md., along with a truss and steel plant also in Owings.  

Steven Tripp, marketing manager at Chaney Enterprises, has been named chief builder of BuilderUp, taking over operations of the new division and overseeing the merger and launch. A 10-year employee of Chaney, Tripp said he is dedicated to advancing the building industry in his new role by modernizing the brand, equipment, and processes with a focus on the customer.

“We could not imagine a more ideal way to bring these two leading suppliers together than to create BuilderUp,” Tripp said. “My first six months has been busy, laying the groundwork of a new company and working out the details of the merger."

“The expansion brings two different but trusted construction suppliers together and promises great news to present and future customers,” Tripp said. “With a hyper focus on a mission to make life easier for our customers, we have new product lines, services, and methods of helping them that we’ll be announcing throughout the year. We are really looking forward to sharing innovations that nobody in the industry is even thinking about.”

Chaney Enterprises acquired the 40-year-old Dunkirk Supply in 2016 and has owned and operated The Concrete Store for 26 years.
