Mead Lumber Company has purchased Teague Lumber Company Inc. of Kansas City, Mo. Teague Lumber has served the Kansas City metro area as a full-service lumber yard and building material supplier for residential and light commercial new construction since 2002.

The company has four locations in the Kansas City area: corporate office, including the millwork operation and a separate lumber yard in Grandview, Mo., as well as lumber yards in Liberty, Mo., and Bonner Springs, Kan.

“All of us here at Teague Lumber are excited to join the Mead Lumber family,” said Don Margritier, president of Teague Lumber. “We’ve had several parties interested in purchasing us, but when it came down to it, the values that Mead Lumber has, their culture and track record in the communities they serve, and the fact that Mead Lumber is 100% employee-owned, made it the best decision for us.”

Dave Anderson, president and CEO of Mead Lumber, said “Teague Lumber not only gives us our first locations in the state of Missouri, but also gives us a great opportunity to expand into the Kansas City market."

The business will continue to operate under the name Teague Lumber Company. The current management team under the direction of Ron Avery, Kansas City market manager, will continue to lead day-to-day operations at Teague Lumber. All of the current employees will remain and become employees of Mead Lumber.
