Freeform (formerly Business Interiors of Idaho), a Boise-based company for more than 35 years, has acquired Brutzman’s Office Solutions, an office supply and furniture dealer in Richland, WA. Brutzman’s has been a Tri-Cities mainstay and family-owned business for over 75 years and has established a reputation for exceptional customer service. With this acquisition, Freeform expands its Inland Northwest presence to three locations: Boise, Spokane, and the Tri-Cities.
On the acquisition, Jeff Heath, CEO of Freeform, says, “We are excited to add Brutzman’s to the Freeform team. Ken, Keith, Kathy, and the entire Brutzman’s team share our same commitment to the community and pride themselves on providing quality solutions and exceptional service to customers. We believe our shared values and outlook will lead to a smooth integration across our now three locations. We are deeply appreciative of the Brutzman family to trust our team with their family legacy and to continue to foster the relationships they have built in the Tri-Cities for nearly a century. We look forward to bringing our collective passion and expertise to the community, to create and grow new lifelong relationships.”
Ken Brutzman, Vice President of Brutzman’s, shares, “We are thrilled to be joining the Freeform team and expanding the services we can provide to our clients. As family-owned companies, the Brutzman’s and Freeform teams understand the importance of the impact we can have on the communities we operate in. Our expanded team will continue to serve the Tri-Cities communities with the same level of service and expertise they’ve grown accustomed to over Brutzman’s more than 75-year history.”
Brutzman’s employees will continue to work in the company’s Tri-Cities office, and the brand will be thoughtfully adjusted to align with Freeform’s in a manner that respects Brutzman’s tenure in the market and the relationships the team has established over their long history. The merger will allow Tri-Cities customers to benefit from the organization’s expanded capabilities, shared resources, efficiencies, and purchasing power.
