Kodiak Building Partners expands in Arizona

By HBSDealer Staff - 02/20/2018
Denver-based Kodiak Building Supply announced the acquisition of substantially all the operating assets of Arizona Wholesale Supply Company, with three locations in Arizona. The new acquisition will be paired with Kodiak’s Factory Builder Stores, based in Houston.

“Arizona Wholesale Supply has been a strong regional company that has exciting potential into future years, particularly as it is paired with our Factory Builder Stores (FBS) operations that are being run by President Doug Rapier,” said Paul Hylbert, Kodiak chairman. “Doug’s experience in the sale of his own company to Kodiak in 2014 should greatly assist the team at AWS as they move forward.”

Arizona Wholesale Supply Company is described as a high-service regional appliance and flooring dealer that specializes in the support of residential contractors and their customers. It operates from three locations in Arizona: Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tucson.

“We are looking forward to welcoming AWS, into the Kodiak Family,” said Steve Swinney, Kodiak CEO. “The team at Factory Builder Stores is excited to work with the team at AWS. We feel we can leverage the best practices in place at FBS and combine that with AWS’s in-depth local market knowledge to create a significant multi-regional presence in the Kitchen and Bath, Cabinet and Appliance sector and now the Flooring sector as well. The AWS Management Team will remain in place and be led by Bill Parks, an executive with considerable experience at the helm of AWS.”
