Curtis Lumber announced the acquisition of Wiley Brothers at 1854 Route 40 in Schaghticoke.
Wiley Brothers has been a family-owned lumber yard and home improvement store for 75 years.
Adding this new location brings the number of Curtis Lumber Co. locations to 23, all of which are independent, family-owned, full-service home centers and building supply yards.
Officials said moving forward, the store location will carry Curtis Lumber’s premium products, superior hardware assortment, and be staffed with the expertise to cater to both builders and homeowners.
Curtis Lumber has long served the area with delivery service from nearby stores and this acquisition will serve to increase delivery and product availability to more of Rensselaer county.
“When we were approached about adding Wiley Brothers to our existing store locations, we jumped at the chance,” said Jay Curtis, president, and CEO. “Our superior product assortment, award-winning delivery service, and extensive employee training program will only improve upon what has been a well-run family business.”
All Wiley Bros employees were offered positions with Curtis Lumber.
Established in 1890, Curtis Lumber Co. serves eastern, central, and northern New York and Vermont. The company’s 650 employees serve both consumers and professional builders alike. The company has a delivery fleet of 100 trucks.
