Kodiak Building Partners announced today the celebration of their 10-year anniversary. Kodiak was founded in July 2011 with the intent of focusing on acquiring family-run businesses in the building material sales and distribution industries. Creating a culture that empowers local leaders to succeed in the communities they serve is a core principle of Kodiak that has been implemented since the start of the company. Over the last 10 years, Kodiak has acquired over 89 locations in 22 states with over 5,000 employees in becoming a well-known and appreciated industry leader across the nation.

Steve Swinney, CEO of Kodiak commented that “After working in and learning about the building materials and construction industry, we felt that building a decentralized, locally-driven, and entrepreneurial consolidator had never been done successfully without damaging the culture of legacy companies. At Kodiak we are committed to continuing to pursue the fiercely decentralized vision we created 10 years ago.”

Paul Hylbert, Chairman of Kodiak’s Board of Directors stated that “We put our trust in our team and operate on a decentralized basis, keeping the strength of the company as near to the customer as possible. Kodiak has unlimited growth potential as long as we continue with the same operating model and keep our strong culture starting with customers and our team.”

Scott Barton, VP of Business Development at Kodiak and Senior VP at Barton Supply said that “When I sold to Kodiak 10 years ago, I knew I was dealing with a company that has integrity and honesty. Each year Kodiak gets bigger and better due to the company’s diligence to be decentralized and offering the support that their operating companies need.”
