Woodcraft Acquires Midwest Woodworkers

Midwest Woodworkers in Omaha will become the first Woodcraft retail store in Nebraska.

PARKERSBURG, W. VA. (PRWEB) April 04, 2017 - Woodcraft Supply, LLC, has purchased Midwest Woodworkers, a 38-year-old Omaha, Nebraska-based company that sells woodworking equipment and supplies. The company’s Omaha store will transition into a Woodcraft retail store, the first one in the state of Nebraska.

Owner Gerry Phelan will remain as general manager, along with the current staff. Once the transition to a Woodcraft store is complete, customers will be able to purchase an expanded assortment of products and have access to the Woodcraft Customer Service and Technical Departments for assistance.

When he announced the acquisition in March, Woodcraft President Jody Garrett said, “Our two companies share many similarities. Both of our companies have built strong brands, and we both pride ourselves in providing professional quality woodworking tools and exceptional customer service. The two companies are a good fit, and Woodcraft will continue to give Midwest Woodworkers customers the quality service provided by the former owner Gerry Phelan.”

Elaborating on Garrett’s comments, Phelan said, “I am pleased to announce that Midwest Woodworkers is being acquired by Woodcraft Supply, LLC. This merger will bring to our customers the strengths and additional products that Woodcraft offers, while retaining all that Midwest Woodworkers has been known for - an amazing selection of hardwoods, solid woodworking expertise of our staff, and the classes we offer - it will all be there. This conversion to Woodcraft will keep the operation as the leader in woodworking tools, supplies, wood and advice in the Omaha market. I want to sincerely thank you, our loyal customers, for your support over these past 8 years, and I look forward to seeing you in the future, as I will remain the general manager at the store.”

“Woodcraft is pleased to be able to introduce woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers in Omaha and the surrounding area to the Woodcraft line of products and instructional programs and materials,” Garrett said.
