TAL Holdings, one of the fastest growing family-owned building material centers in the Pacific Northwest announced today they have reached an agreement in principle to acquire the five-store chain, Orofino Builders Supply (Orofino), located in Grangeville, Kamiah, Lewiston, and Orofino, Idaho.

“I am thrilled to welcome Orofino to the TAL family of brands,” shared Jason Blair, CEO of TAL Holdings. “Orofino’s values, culture and emphasis on community are a great fit with TAL. We could not be happier to join forces with such a well-established company and expand our presence in the Idaho market.”

Orofino began in 1928 when Oren Crockett bought an interest in the JM Bryant store in Orofino, ID. In 1930, Oren and his wife, Nell, bought out John Bryant and started Crockett’s Hardware.

Over four generations, the Crockett family grew the business from a small neighborhood hardware store to a five-store operation that includes hardware stores, lumberyards, and design centers. Will Crockett, the current owner, has continued in his family’s tradition of putting the needs of the customers at the forefront.

Crockett added, “finding the right partner was very important to us. TAL understands the importance of upholding our legacy while at the same time investing in continued growth. We are excited to benefit from the resources and scale of a larger organization.”

“Orofino will open as part of the TAL family on April 11, 2022, and, in the coming months, the name will be transitioned to Best Built Builders Supply,” Blair said. “Currently, Orofino operates under several different names. The change, which was initiated by Will and his team before acquisition discussions began, will unify the brand and create consistency for employees and customers. We will continue to use the Windows, Doors & More Store branding for design centers as a sub-brand of Best Built Builders Supply.”
