“Builders Millwork is a strong and respected player in the upper Midwest markets for custom millwork. We are excited to add Jerry’s team to our growing organization, alongside the other LBM operations in the Kodiak family. Expansion of our millwork capabilities is an important component of our growth strategy and the BMI team helps to further our efforts in this segment,” said Steve Swinney, CEO of Kodiak.
Jerry Jehn, owner of Builders Millwork, said that “It has been great getting to know the Kodiak team and understanding their decentralized approach with all of their operating companies.

We look forward to working with Kodiak and are confident in a very positive outlook for all parties involved.”
