David Stordahl, co-owner of Triple S Building Center of Butte, was installed president of the Western Building Material Association at the group’s annual convention in Oregon.
Members from Montana, Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington networked and learned about industry updates in the housing markets, changes and trends in permits, as well as hiring practices and strategies to adapt to a younger workforce and customer base.
Triple S Building Center was formed in Butte in 1988 by Milo, Phyllis, David and Douglas Stordahl. The family-owned business grew through hard work and dedication, and in 2013, they remodeled the store’s exterior and added a storage building. The business that began with 10 employees has grown to provide full-time jobs for 36 workers and two part-time positions.
Stordahl said the best part of running the store is watching customers’ dreams come true.
