DUBUQUE, Iowa -- Spahn & Rose Lumber Co. has acquired Lake Geneva, Wisconsin-based Dunn Lumber.

With the acquisition, two of the region's longest-standing businesses are now one. Dunn Lumber was founded in 1894 by Edward F. Dunn, and the store has been owned by the same family since it opened. The current owners, brothers Mike and Terry Dunn, are planning to retire after the sale.

Now serving professional builders, remodelers and homeowners throughout Walworth County, southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, Dunn Lumber consists of three business segments: lumber and building materials, hardware and rental. The 18,000-square-foot store is also the home of DC Design Services, a full-service cabinet-design studio that caters to homeowners and contractors.

Dunn Lumber was recently named the 2019 Wisconsin Retail Lumber Association Dealer of the Year. The acquisition will enable Spahn & Rose to build on this success by providing Dunn Lumber with business efficiencies and additional resources.

Spahn & Rose Lumber Co., which has been serving the professional contractor since it opened in 1904, is a leading lumber & building materials distributor in the Midwest. With 24 locations throughout Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin, Spahn & Rose provides building materials, such as windows, doors, cabinets, drywall, roofing, decking and lumber, enabling builders, contractors and homeowners to buy easier and build better. http://www.spahnandrose.com/
