Idaho-based Hoff Cos. has purchased the assets of Allied Lumber Dealers, a wholesale door distributor in Denver.  The Colorado business will be merged with Hoff’s Trimco Millwork Distribution Division. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“We are very excited about having Jim Bakarich, and his team join our company," says Brian Hoff, Hoff president and CEO. "We’ve been looking to expand our product offering in doors in the resurgent Front Range market of Colorado for quite some time, and Allied Lumber Dealers gives us the means to do so.”

“The combination of our current business, along with the capital and operating support from Hoff through Trimco, will allow us to expand the combined company at a much faster rate, give all employees more opportunity for personal growth and provide a wider variety of products to all of our customers more efficiently," adds Jim Bakarich, Allied president.

“We’re very pleased to have the Allied Lumber Dealers team on board and are looking forward to combining forces with our Aurora, Colorado distribution operation to better serve our customers in the Front Range and neighboring markets," says Paul Peters, manager of Trimco's millwork division.  We have experienced a significant upturn in our business recently and we expect to grow even faster by adding Allied’s expertise and resources to ours.”

Allied Lumber Dealers was founded in 1957 by several retail lumber yard owners as a buying cooperative. Since that time, it has evolved to become a major supplier of wood doors to lumberyards, pre-hung door and millwork shops, pro dealers and other wholesalers.

Hoff Cos. started operations as a sawmill in 1910 and has grown to include Trimco Millwork with operations in Idaho, Utah and Colorado, as well as Western Window, a vinyl window manufacturer with operations in Nampa, Idaho.  The company also includes Hoff Timberland Division and BanBury Land Development.
