Ambassador Supply purchases Astro Buildings

Fort Wayne, Ind. —  Omaha-based Astro Buildings is under new ownership after an acquisition by the Fort Wayne, Indiana-based Ambassador Supply. The acquisition was completed June 10.

“Astro Buildings has been a staple in this region for more than 50 years, and they’ve maintained a sterling reputation for high-quality work and phenomenal customer service,” said Brad Crawford, president and CEO of Ambassador Supply. “None of that will change. The team’s experience coupled with new resources for growth from Ambassador makes this a perfect marriage.”

With Astro Buildings, Ambassador expands its Midwest footprint in seven states — Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, South Dakota, Minnesota and Colorado — for the construction of post-frame buildings. In January, Ambassador combined three other post-frame building companies – Country Metals, Hixwood and Qualiform Metals – under the Wisconsin-based Hixwood name.
