Canadian-based Flynn Group of Companies and Cobra BEC, Inc., have entered into a letter of intent to combine their operations. With offices in Spokane, Seattle, Portland, Boise and Dallas, Cobra has over 250 dedicated employees. Cobra has earned an outstanding reputation in the industry based on their strong values, award-winning safety culture and offering customers the most talented project teams in the market.
It’s the company’s first acquisition of the year, and first since it teamed up with BRI Commercial Roofing, of Dallas, in January 2017.
Cobra is led by brothers Travis and Eric Dix, who after completing succession in their family business, have aggressively grown the business in the region over the past decade. Travis and Eric’s strategic leadership will be key to Flynn’s growth in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, as they will continue to oversee operations throughout the Northwest.
“We are very excited to arrive in the Pacific Northwest. Even more importantly, we are thrilled to welcome the youthful, high energy talents of Travis and Eric to our group of senior leaders. They also bring with them a group of high-quality leaders and employees at all levels,” stated Doug Flynn, CEO.
“We think that by combining our teams of people, we are perfectly positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities in the region. Providing advancement for our people is particularly important to us; teaming up with Flynn offers our employees opportunity we could not otherwise provide,” added Travis Dix.
Dix’s brother, Eric said they discovered their company philosophy was closely aligned to Flynn’s after a conversation started about becoming partners for future growth.
“We think the same way when it comes to people and strategy, and share the same level of passion for this business,” he explained. “Travis and I are excited to continue leading our team in this next phase of growth. We know this is good for Cobra and Flynn.” continued Eric Dix.
Based out of Toronto, the Flynn Group of Companies now has 35 locations throughout Canada and the United States and although not in a race, is always on the lookout for culturally and strategically aligned potential growth partners. With Cobra, Flynn will now have more than 5,500 employees and continues to be the industry leader in North America when it comes to the total building envelope.
