Zeeland Lumber and Supply has moved into the Detroit market with its recent acquisition of Maverick Building Systems. Located in Commerce, Mich., Maverick specializes in design and delivery of roof and floor trusses, and engineered wood systems.
“This acquisition will further our capabilities and our capacity in our Zeeland Truss and Components division, adding design and manufacturing experience in trusses and engineered wood. Kevin and Glenn and their team are a welcome addition to the Zeeland Lumber family,” said company President and CEO Mike Dykstra.
This acquisition adds to the Zeeland Lumber enterprise for a total of seven locations, including three full service lumber and building material yards, three truss and component operations, and a sales office/showroom location. Zeeland has grown geographically in recent years from West Michigan into Northern Indiana and Eastern Michigan, and the Maverick Building Systems acquisition is strategically located to further Zeeland’s efforts into the Eastern Michigan market.
“The solid service and quality platform that Maverick has built its business on, aligns with our values, and will help us extend our brand and market presence in the Eastern Michigan market,” said Dykstra.
Kevin Maguire, the former owner and current General Manager of Maverick said he is excited about this transaction. Kevin added, “Zeeland brings a lot of resources to our company that will provide better opportunities for growth and enhance employee benefits. After 21 years in business, the time was right to make this decision.”
