Koopman Lumber & Hardware, the eastern Massachusetts lumber, paint, and hardware dealer, has acquired Boilard Lumber.

Founded in Indian Orchard, Mass. in 1936, Boilard Lumber is a family-owned and operated retail lumber yard and building materials supplier. 

Boilard Lumber officially adopted the Koopman name on June 27. 

“We’re excited about the opportunities this merger presents,” said Dirk Koopman, chief operating officer of Koopman Lumber. “It’s an honor to partner with a business as well-respected as Boilard Lumber, and to expand our business into western Massachusetts. We have an experienced transition team, and our goal is a smooth transition for every employee and customer. We’ll offer additional product lines, enhanced capabilities and greater resources, all in the capable hands of the same staff who know their customers and their business needs.”

All Boilard employees were welcomed to remain on staff and Robert Boilard, vice president, will remain as General Manager. 

“After 86 years of continuous family ownership, we are happy to have found another business that shares our history and values to continue our legacy in western Massachusetts,” said Mike Boilard, president of Boilard Lumber. “It was important to us to turn the reins over to people who are as committed as we have been to both our customers and employees. The Koopman family fits that bill.”

With this acquisition, Koopman Lumber now operates 11 locations while extending into western Massachusetts.
