On Friday, June 26, Dolese Bros. Co. (Dolese) acquired 100 percent of the stock of The Quapaw Company.
The Quapaw Company was founded in the early 1950s by the Childress family and was joined shortly after by the Kiser family. These families were starting the fourth generation of ownership and had built a well-known and respected business in their communities. The Quapaw Company will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dolese.
This acquisition will extend Dolese’s reach into northern Oklahoma with quarries near Drumright and Pawnee, Okla. The Quapaw Company has an asphalt plant near Drumright as well as several buildings and land holdings in the Stillwater area.
“Dolese is excited to add the Quapaw employees to our team and benefit from the skills and knowledge they bring,” Dolese President & CEO Mark Helm said. “We look forward to the opportunity to serve the communities in northern Oklahoma and expand our ability to provide quality construction materials in this market.”
Dolese is headquartered in Oklahoma City operating more than 65 facilities throughout Oklahoma offering full-service construction supply and material operation.
