Kiel Progress briefs 2013
Kiel company changes name

Kiel Building Supply has announced that the company is changing its name to Drexel Building Supply.

The company has four locations— Campbellsport Building Supply, Berlin Building Supply, Kiel Building Supply, and Drexel Incorporated. As of April 1 all locations will use the same name, Drexel Building Supply. Company officials said it will be a slow change and will not affect how they are currently serving their customers and the local communities.

“We are not going anywhere, and we are not being bought or sold,” said Joel Fleischman, owner of Drexel Building Supply. “We are still connected to our local communities. We donated over $50,000 to local charities in 2012. Our lofty goal of creating the best buying experience for our customers and the community has not changed.”

Fleischman explained that consistently branding all four locations via one name will help build brand awareness across the region, allowing Drexel Building Supply to maintain and grow as a market leader in building materials.
