ProBuild Holdings announced today it has opened a new facility in Kalispell, Mont. The operation, which ProBuild described in a news release only as "a 33-year-old, full-service lumberyard," is the same facility that Stock Building Supply closed earlier this summer.

This is the 11th ProBuild facility in Montana and the first in the far northwest region of the state, near Glacier National Park, said ProBuild, America's biggest LBM operation. It has 15 employees.

"Our newest Montana facility provides us the opportunity to best serve the growing Kalispell market," said Doug Ossefoort, president of the ProBuild Midwest region. "We are very pleased to be joining forces with a strong team of people led by Brent Hall, one of the former owners of this business."

Added Hall, the store's general manager: "Customers will enjoy the same level of product offerings and professional service they have come to expect since I started the business back in 1976. Our combined ability to expand the business and to provide a wider selection of products and services will help our Kalispell customers continue to grow."
