O‑A‑K Announces Colorado Expansion

(CASTLE ROCK, CO) – Owen‑Ames‑Kimball Co. (O‑A‑K), professional general contractor and construction management firm, announces expansion into Colorado market. Founded in 1891, O‑A‑K is headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with divisions in both Michigan and Florida.

“To say we are excited about opening an office in Colorado would be an understatement,” said Frank Stanek, O‑A‑K’s Chief Executive Officer. “As an employee-owned company, we are always looking for opportunities to serve people well. Both our employees and our business partners will benefit from this expansion.”

BACKGROUND

Over the past decade, O‑A‑K has experienced consistent growth within all regions, more than doubling its size in revenue and number of employees. The firm is on track to complete $390 million in revenue this year, within both the public and private sectors.

O‑A‑K Colorado will be the company’s third division. The new division is the result of several years of strategic planning, a process that involved leaders from Michigan and Florida. As a region, the firm chose Colorado based on a number of factors, including market sector diversity, enterprise opportunities, and cultural fit.

“The Colorado division feels like a very natural progression for our company. We are confident that our values and experience will allow us to serve the area well,” said Stanek.

The company attributes its growth and success to four core values: doing what’s right, every time; a can-do attitude; a personal sense of responsibility; and people who value other people.

COLORADO LEADERSHIP

Michael Beaudoin, local construction leader, will lead the firm’s new division as the President of O‑A‑K Colorado. Beaudoin is a Colorado native and brings over 30 years of dynamic leadership experience.

“I am so fortunate to have this opportunity with such an amazing company, I have never been more aligned with a company’s values,” commented Michael Beaudoin, President of O‑A‑K Colorado. “I am eager to leverage my knowledge and relationships, as well as O‑A‑K’s 131 years of expertise and resources, to lead O‑A‑K’s growth into Colorado.”

The doors to O‑A‑K’s Colorado office, located at 202 6th Street in Castle Rock, officially opened for business this week. The firm will be hosting an official open house on Thursday, August 4, to greet Colorado business partners.

To say we are excited about opening an office in Colorado would be an understatement. As an employee-owned company, we are always looking for opportunities to serve people well. Both our employees and our business partners will benefit from this expansion.
