KHS&S Forms Joint Venture in Pacific Northwest


KHS&S Contractors has formed a joint venture with U.S. Drywall Company, Inc. of Tacoma, WA to more efficiently serve customers throughout the Pacific Northwest.

U.S. Drywall, a KHS&S Contractors Venture, brings together KHS&S' extensive product versatility and significant resources with U.S. Drywall's strong local team and 20-year history in the market.

"We're always interested in building relationships and business models that maximize our competitive strengths and add value to our customers," says Dave Suder, president, KHS&S-West Coast. "We respect the position that U.S. Drywall has earned in the marketplace. By combining our broad operational expertise with U.S. Drywall's local reputation, we've created an outstanding team."

"This venture brings together the best of both of our companies and allows us to provide a new level of construction quality and service to the Pacific Northwest," says Pete Battisti, president of U.S. Drywall, who will lead the venture as area manager. "It's a winning proposition for our customers and employees."

Battisti will continue to work with his veteran team of Jeff Castagnola, general superintendent; Auston Janes, estimator/project manager; and Dave Twedell, project engineer/purchasing. The venture will maintain U.S. Drywall's office at 5503 15th Street E, Fife, WA. The telephone number is 253-922-3445.

KHS&S Contractors is the nation's second-largest wall and ceiling contractor and the nation's leading theme contractor.
