Christensen Lumber was founded in 1923 and was one of the first businesses to establish itself in Fremont. The company has 250 employees.

“By no accident, Christensen Lumber has become a leader in the Midwest for engineered wood building components, millwork, and lumber sales. Hard work, deliberate planning, investments, and execution led us to this juncture, and Kodiak is perfectly positioned to allow us to continue on our successful journey and help us keep our focus on our areas of expertise,” said Tom Christensen.

Along with its yard and a showroom in Freemont, the company operates showrooms and sales offices in Omaha and Lincoln. Christensen also operates Kansas City Components in Spring Hill, Kansas.

“I’m so pleased to have the opportunity to join the Christensen family in serving their midwestern markets.  The values represented by Christensen and the communities they serve…family, hard work, and humility, are ones we share,” said Steve Swinney, Kodiak’s CEO.

“Tom has led his family’s business to new heights and has thoughtfully planned out Christensen’s bright future.  We feel fortunate to partner with such a fine company and its exceptional employees.  Great things will continue to happen at Christensen!”
