About Kodiak Building Partners

Kodiak Building Partners was founded in July 2011 with the intent of focusing on acquiring family-run businesses in the building material sales and distribution industries. After spending several years in the building materials industry, Kodiak CEO Steve Swinney found his inspiration for the company with the vision of honoring the industry’s history of local family business. Over the last 12 years, Kodiak has acquired over 100 locations in 25 states with over 6,000 employees, becoming a well-known and appreciated industry leader across the nation.

While Kodiak does a lot of acquisitions within the industry, we are proud of the fact that we operate differently than most acquisition firms of the same nature. Since the historical legacy of the industry is so fragmented by local companies, we operate on a fierce principle of decentralization when it comes to locally owned businesses.

Over the past 12 years, we have quickly established a reputation for building the foundation to help operating businesses grow and succeed to become leaders in the building materials industry. Kodiak values and respects local— it is important to us that the companies we acquire remain unchanged, and that local leaders continue to do what they do best as they operate under the same name while making the decisions they’ve always made to serve their community.

“We firmly believe our local and entrepreneurial culture is the driving force of what we do.”  ~Steve Swinney, CEO

Locally-Driven Mission

Kodiak enables independent building material companies to thrive locally by providing resources that help leaders grow their businesses while empowering employees and customers to build their American dreams.

Vision for Success

Creating a culture that empowers local leaders to succeed in the communities they serve.

Strong Culture

Our culture and our people are what make the Kodiak Family unique— relationships between operating company leaders and the Kodiak team are built on trust and collaboration. As Kodiak has grown over the past 12 years and continues to grow in the future, we continue to look for businesses whose values align with Kodiak’s: passion, humility, work ethic, and most of all, trust.
