HAMMOND LUMBER ACQUIRES WILTON’S DEXTER SUPPLY


Hammond Lumber Company, headquartered in Belgrade, announced Monday that it has purchased the assets of Dexter Supply in Wilton, representing a hand-off from one long-time Maine family business to another.

Dexter Supply, located five miles from Hammond Lumber’s Farmington facility, now becomes the 13th store for Hammond, which began in 1953 as a three-man sawmill and entered the retail building supply business in 1967.

Most of the employees of Dexter Supply, owned by Kelly and Jennifer Dexter, had worked for the business all of their working lives. Hammond is currently interviewing those Dexter employees who would like to make the transition to Hammond Lumber Company.

“These are very knowledgeable people,” says Hammond Lumber vice-president Mike Hammond, “and we looking forward to welcoming them into our company.”

Hammond says the former Dexter facility will run in tandem with Hammond Lumber’s Farmington location, and its manager, Al Feather, will oversee both operations.
