An area company announces its fourth expansion in three years. On Monday, Your Building Company (Y.B.C.), headquartered in Altoona, took over Berlin Lumber Company in Somerset County.
Y.B.C. says there will be relatively no changes at the new company and all of the employees will retain their jobs.
Your Building Company is completely employee owned and now workers at the new company will also become owners.
“We all as owners have a stake in the company, we have a stake in the outcome, and not only is it our job and our career, but it’s our company and what we do and how we handle ourselves and conduct business is important, because it’s ours,” says Y.B.C. Vice President of Purchasing and Marketing Dean Conrad.
He adds that Y.B.C., which has 16 stores in Central Pennsylvania, plans to continue to grow and already has other acquisitions in the works.
