August, 2019… Our New Home
Relationship – Focused
since 1941, relationships have formed the foundation for our
success…built on respect, honest and proactive communication
and a sincere desire to serve.
We will take pride and hold our heads high, knowing that we are attempting to do things the right way, even is it’s not the right result every time.
We will build our team around experienced, resourceful, and competent professionals who conduct themselves in a manner that strengthens our relationships.
We are committed to providing our team-members with the training, management, and opportunities necessary to build a successful career. We will always look inside first as opportunities for advancement arise.
Pride of Ownership
Our success is directly related to the degree in which each team member takes ownership and is held accountable for his/her actions and responsibilities.
We like to focus on the future. However, we wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for the ambition of two entrepreneurial brothers nearly 80 years ago. Powers Builders’ Supply was founded in 1941, about five years after Jim Powers and his brother Tom moved to Cheyenne, WY in search of work as bricklayers. They quickly developed a strong reputation not only for their masonry skills but also as a source for high-quality building materials. Capitalizing on this success, in 1944, they built the first cinder-block manufacturing plant in the State and started a new company called Powers Brick and Tile.
Over the next 30 years, the two companies firmly established themselves as the premier source for commercial building materials, concrete block, and related masonry products in Wyoming. In 1973, Mick Powers, Jim’s son, took over as President of the companies and expanded the scope of Powers Builders Supply into specialized architectural building products including skylights, operable walls, and synthetic rubber gym/track surfacing. He also expanded the company’s geographic coverage by entering the Colorado market in 1974.
Brent Powers became the CEO of the Company in 2001, representing the third generation of family management/ownership. In 2003, the company’s block manufacturing division was sold to Robinson Brick Co., resulting in its exclusive focus today on the sale, installation, and service of specialty architectural building products. In 2019, the company relocated to a new location in Denver at 4400 S. Federal Blvd, creating an inspiring and functional work space for its team, which features many of its leading products. In July, 2020, Powers expanded into New Mexico and West Texas through the acquisition of Daylighting Solutions, and it operates as Powers Products Southwest in these markets. With three young Powers kids growing up in the business so-to-speak… stay tuned for the 4th generation transition in about 20 more years!
“Powers is your partner, adding value through a proven combination of specialized product and construction expertise.”
Powers Products’ geographic territory includes Colorado and Wyoming, while Powers Products Southwest focuses on New Mexico and West Texas. We have exclusive distribution rights to our primary product lines in these markets, and our products are broadly categorized in three Solution Centers: Daylighting, Fire + Smoke Separation, and Space Flexibility. We are always searching for highly reputable and innovative manufacturing partners that complement our existing portfolio of products.
Given the uniqueness of these niche product areas, we recognize the need for highly specialized design, construction, and owner support to ensure each project’s success. We’ve built a team of talented, experienced, professionals that are passionate about what we do. We believe that by providing turn-key, furnish and install solutions, Powers is uniquely positioned to bring value to the design and construction team.
