The Evergreen Family

Initially, we will focus on businesses within the manufacturing, distribution, and services-related industries*. Our mission is to keep the business rooted in the community, while maintaining its community mindset during and after the transition..

So far, we have helped two businesses transition, and we are constantly looking for new opportunities!

Trailing 12-Month Economic Activity- Montana

 

 

Jobs Kept and Created

Our first acquisition was Don’s Home Center, a home and construction supplier located in beautiful Hamilton, Montana, along Hwy 93. Started in 1994 with deep Bitterroot “roots”, this business is a lynchpin of the community, that was poised to disappear, and take jobs with it. 

Over a year post-transition, we have expanded our garden center, created a preferred contractor program, redesigned the store and website, and increased staff by 30%. Stop in and see us at Don’s Home Center, the name you trust in home building since 1994!

 

Our second acquisition was Tripp Lumber Company, located in Missoula, Montana. Over the last three decades, Tripp has built a reputation for consistency and quality. We pride ourselves on producing innovative wood products, for both the interior and exterior of homes and businesses.

Now, 2 months post-transition, we are revamping our outreach and web presence, are in the process of expanding our product offerings, and have successfully transferred day-to day operations from the company’s founder, David Tripp, to our new general manager Ryan Tortorich.
