Castle Announces New Member Location in Alberta

Castle announced today that current shareholder Wolf Creek Building Supplies has acquired a second lumber and building materials retail location from a competing banner; this time in Sylvan Lake, Alberta.

Wolf Creek Building Supplies Sylvan Lake is situated in the rapidly expanding community of Sylvan Lake, approximately 25 kilometres West of Red Deer. Before the acquisition, the store location had been serving the contractors, home owners and seasonal visitors to the community for over 15 years and will now open the doors as Castle Building Centres.

The Wolf Creek Group of Companies who transitioned to Castle only a few years ago, currently operates a retail location in Lacombe, Wolf Creek Building Supplies; a full service lumber, building material and hardware store. The group also operate a designer showroom located in the heart of Red Deer, AB bringing together top window and door brands in a bright and inspiring showroom space.

"Independents that join Castle are not just becoming part of another banner or buying group, they are becoming part of a culture. Castle’s dedicated support system is built around a commitment to their success and delivered through Castle’s “Culture of Professionalism”. When you combine this level of support from your buying group partnered with your own hard work and entrepreneurial spirit; growth and prosperity are certain." Ken Jenkins, President, Castle Building Centres Group

With their new 24,000 square foot home centre and two-acre lumber yard in Sylvan Lake as well as the existing Lacombe store and designer showroom, Wolf Creek Building Supplies is now exceptionally positioned to service consumers and contractors in Central Alberta. Experienced local staff will remain on board becoming part of the Wolf Creek Building Supplies family and ready to deliver great service and expertise as the newest Castle location.

"We are very excited to have the opportunity to serve the community in Sylvan Lake with their lumber and hardware needs and look forward to becoming involved as a business in that community.  Given our business relationship and buying power with Castle, we are convinced that we can offer an extensive product selection at competitive pricing for Sylvan Lake, just as we do at Wolf Creek in Lacombe." John deRegt, Owner Wolf Creek Building Supplies

Castle would like to congratulate the Wolf Creek Group of Companies on their new Sylvan Lake location.
