Kinzler Acquires WD Door

Kinzler Construction Services announced its acquisition of WD Door, Iowa’s leading overhead door and operator company with over 25 years experience in both residential and commercial fields. WD Door has their headquarters in Ankeny – with a second location in Cedar Rapids, known as Doors by George. The acquisition was effective January 1.

“At the start of the pandemic, if you asked us to look forward, I don’t think we would have expected this outcome,” said Tanner Kinzler, President & CEO of Kinzler Construction Services. “However, the construction pipeline has remained strong and this merger further strengthens our ability to serve builders and homeowners across the state of Iowa and beyond.”

Kinzler Construction Services is a family and employee-owned construction subcontractor based in Ankeny, with branch locations across Iowa in Ames, Cedar Rapids, and Waterloo – as well as Denver, CO and Tyler, TX. Kinzler installs insulation products, gypsum concrete and fireproofing. The company also distributes a full line of construction materials, including drywall, steel framing, acoustical ceiling tile & EIFS. 

WD Door has developed a reputation built on quality and service, led by Steve Bouchard and Jeff Myers, who will continue to lead the overhead door division of the business as General Managers well into the future. All 50+ WD Door and Doors by George team members are being retained and the change will be seamless for customers.

“This partnership with Kinzler will help us serve our customers even better,” adds Jeff Myers, WD Door General Manager. “But the friendly people and industry-leading customer service you’ve come to expect will remain the same.”

WD Door, previously Wayne Dalton of Central Iowa, was founded in 2003. Today, the company’s trained and certified technicians install, service and repair hundreds of residential and commercial garage doors every year.

Longtime Tyler, TX Smoked Turkey Business Rebuilds After Fire & Explosions

Greenberg Smoked Turkey Inc. is nearing completion on a new shipping and freezer facility after a fire and series of explosions severely damaged its storage facilities in November, 2021. The incident forced the company to shut down operations just weeks before Thanksgiving and Christmas, their busiest time of year.

Kinzler Construction Services, Home of Garland & Jones Insulation, was hired to insulate the massive cold storage facility using closed-cell spray foam. Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is one of the best and most durable insulation products on the market. Kinzler installed eight-inches of spray foam on the walls and ceiling in order to keep the facility at zero degrees, 24/7 – 365 days a year, storing Greenberg’s delicious smoked turkeys.

Greenberg Smoked Turkey anticipates turkeys will be available beginning in October.

K-13 Thermal & Acoustic Insulation Installed at Carroll Readiness Center

Look how great this K-13 Thermal Insulation looks! Kinzler Construction Services was brought in by Badding Construction to install K-13 at the Iowa National Guard Carroll Readiness Center.

K-13 was the ideal product to install on this ceiling because it meets project requirements for insulation (R value), noise reduction (NRC), color, durability, condensation control, texture, and aesthetics.

The K-13 system begins with specially prepared cellulose fibers combined with natural fire retardants in a strict, quality-controlled manufacturing process. K-13 is then spray-applied by Kinzler’s professional installers to ensure consistent and predictable results. During application, the K-13 fibers combine with a water-based adhesive resulting in a durable, exposed finish.
