Flynn Group of Companies and Cobra BEC, Inc. Enter Into Letter of Intent
We are excited to announce that 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.
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.
“We started a conversation with Flynn as a potential growth partner and discovered that both companies’ philosophies were closely aligned. We think the same way when it comes to people and strategy, and share the same level of passion for this business. 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.
“Teaming up with Cobra is a great opportunity for Flynn,” said John McManus, COO. “Not only does this accelerate our development in the vibrant Pacific Northwest, but we are adding significant leadership and delivery capacity overall.”
Based out of Toronto, 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 upwards of 5500 employees and continues to be the industry leader in North America when it comes to the Total Building Envelope.
