Arctic Slope Regional Corporation Announces New Acquisition
Builders Choice is now a member of the ASRC family of companies
Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (“ASRC”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Builders Choice, Inc. (“BCI” or “the Company”) by our wholly-owned subsidiary ASRC Construction Holding Company, LLC (“ACHC”). Headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, BCI was founded 20 years ago and is now Alaska’s leading provider of customized modular solutions. The Company serves a diverse group of customers, including state, local and federal government agencies, oil and gas producers and service providers, mining companies and residential real estate developers. In addition to its facility in Anchorage, BCI operates a manufacturing plant in Vermillion, South Dakota. In 2013, the Company began selling building materials and engineered roof trusses from stores in Anchorage, Wasilla and Soldotna.
“On behalf of ASRC’s board of directors, I am pleased to welcome BCI’s employees to the ASRC family of companies,” said Rex A. Rock Sr., president and CEO of ASRC. “This acquisition demonstrates ASRC’s continued commitment to the state of Alaska. Despite the challenges posed by the current economic environment, ASRC believes Alaska’s long-term future is bright.”
“Over the past 20 years, BCI has built a reputation as a customer-focused, value-added solutions provider,” said Doug Smith, president and CEO of ACHC. “The acquisition of BCI fills a number of ACHC’s capability gaps and immediately increases alignment between our service offerings and the needs of our customers.”
“Today is an exciting day for BCI and its employees,” said Mark Larson, BCI president and CEO. “I believe the combination of ASRC’s financial support and relationships across multiple industries will provide opportunities for growth and expansion of BCI’s products and services.”
Members of the BCI management team, including Mark and Sandi Larson, will maintain their respective roles post-acquisition. In his role as president and CEO of BCI, Mark will report to Doug Smith, president and CEO of ACHC.
