A Walla Walla construction company has merged with Kennewick-based Chervenell Construction.
The owners of Opp & Seibold General Construction and Chervenell announced the deal last month.
The merger will give Chervenell a long-term and consistent presence in the Walla Walla Valley, according to a news release.
Financial details about the merger weren’t disclosed.
Opp & Seibold is a 43-year-old company with a broad client base in Walla Walla and the surrounding communities. The founders of the company, Ken Seibold and Larnie Opp, will continue to work as part of the organization.
Current projects and clients won’t be affected by the merger and will continue to receive excellent customer service, the release said.
Among Opp & Seibold’s projects are a remodel at Key Technology, construction of Columbia REA’s Melrose Street headquarters, the Fort Walla Walla Museum entrance building and exhibit gallery, and several Whitman College and Walla Walla Community College projects, according to the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin.
The impact to Opp and Seibold and Chervenell employees will be minimal, and both companies will continue to operate as is.
“This merger will provide more resources for all involved and many opportunities to share and leverage resources,” said Larnie Opp of Opp & Seibold, in a statement.
Chervenell Construction has been in business since 1975. It has worked on several community projects in Walla Walla, including Edison Elementary School and the city’s Veterans Memorial Pool.
“We are very confident that this strategic partnership has a big up side for Chervenell Construction, Opp & Seibold, all our clients, and more importantly the community moving forward,” said Gary Chervenell, president of Chervenell Construction, in a statement.
