Wisconsin Building Supply came into existence on October 30, 2009, but don’t think for a moment that we are a start-up company with limited experience and ability. To understand the skills and capabilities of today’s Wisconsin Building Supply, we should look at our past. Wisconsin Building Supply traces its heritage back to 1941 in Oconto, Wisconsin.
In 1941 Cantius Stock, along with Urban Scanlan, started Scanlan and Stock Lumber Company. In 1971 his son, K.C. Stock, bought the company and changed the name to Stock Lumber Company. In 1980 K.C. expanded the Oconto operations to Green Bay. Part of that original expansion team in Green Bay was Bill Imig, our current President and Owner.
In the summer of 2009, Bill Imig, along with L.T. Gibson, a former V.P. of Stock Building Supply, formulated a plan to purchase the Wisconsin locations from Stock Building Supply. The resulting company is Wisconsin Building Supply. What this means for our customers is a locally owned company that is well positioned to meet their needs. Our industry-leading staff is well versed in the specific supplies, products and services needed by Wisconsin builders, remodelers and homeowners. Although we may have a new name, our long history is Wisconsin through and through.
