Kodiak Building Partners acquired Denver, Co.-based Western Interior Supply. Western Interior Supply was founded in 1985 to locally source and distribute Division 9 acoustical materials to the Denver-area commercial building industry. The company distributes standard acoustical ceilings, special acoustical ceilings and walls, and decorative ceiling and and wall products to commercial contractors, builders, and developers.

“The acquisition of Western Interior Supply marks our first acquisition in the gypsum space since 2017,” Kodiak CEO Steve Swinney said in a news release. “This is a bold strategy with headwinds in the single-family market, and we are confident it will pay off for Kodiak and expand our gypsum-related offerings along the Colorado Front Range market.”

Kim Stafford will continue to serve as the general manager for Western Interior Supply and will report to Beau Hayes, president of Jones Heartz and Drywall Material Sales, two gypsum distributors based in Colorado.

“Western Interior Supply is excited to partner with Kodiak to expand our capabilities, customer base, market coverage, and service to our customers,” Stafford said. “Our team at Western has become our company’s greatest asset over the years, and I appreciate Kodiak’s emphasis on prioritizing our team to continue to make decisions at the local level for our growing market and industry.”

Highland Ranch, Co.-based Kodiak Building Partners operates 103 locations across Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
