Koopman Lumber & Hardware Acquires Boilard Lumber

Operating since 1939, Koopman Lumber, a family-owned and -operated business, announced it has acquired Boilard Lumber, another family-owned and -operated retail lumberyard providing quality building supplies since 1936 in Indian Orchard, Massachusetts. Koopman Lumber has 10 locations in eastern Massachusetts.

“We’re excited about the opportunities this merger presents,” says Dirk Koopman, COO. “It’s an honor to partner with a business as well-respected as Boilard Lumber and to expand our business into western Massachusetts. We have an experienced transition team, and our goal is a smooth transition for every employee and customer. We’ll offer additional product lines, enhanced capabilities and greater resources, all in the capable hands of the same staff who know their customers and their business needs.”

Boilard Lumber adopted the Koopman name on June 27. All Boilard employees were welcomed to remain on staff, and Robert Boilard, vice president of Boilard Lumber will move into the general manager role with Koopman Lumber. 

“After 86 years of continuous family ownership, we are happy to have found another business that shares our history and values to continue our legacy in western Massachusetts,” says Mike Boilard, president of Boilard Lumber. “It was important to us to turn the reins over to people who are as committed as we have been to both our customers and employees. The Koopman family fits that bill.”

Koopman Lumber offers three full-line lumber, hardware, paint, lawn and garden stores in Whitinsville, Uxbridge and North Grafton; one lumber, hardware, paint and design center in Sharon; a full-service paint store in Milford; lumber yards and kitchen design centers in Hudson, Andover and Fairhaven; and distribution centers in Uxbridge and Sutton.
