“This opportunity is very exciting for my family,” said Chad Leibbrandt in a letterannouncing the change.
He said he is excited to be back in the building industry where he has eight years of experience. Leibbrandt previously worked for Adams Lumber 16 years ago. He took career paths in Kearney and Denver, ending up back in Imperial. As president and vice president of Leibbrandt Lumber Inc.(DBA Adams Lumber Company) the Leibbrandts are looking forward to working with employees and customers associated with their newly acquired business.
Ron, Mike and Marcia said they greatly appreciate customers who have been loyal to the business over a span of 93 years in serving southwestern Nebraska. They encourage everyone to continue to support Chad and Amy in providing building needs.
