Bliffert Lumber & Hardware has merged with Oostburg Lumber Company, a single location, full-service lumberyard and design center in Oostburg, Wis. The transaction closed in November 2021.
Oostburg Lumber has been serving Sheboygan County and the surrounding area since 1979 specializing in lumber, millwork, windows, decking, garage doors, kitchens and baths.

“We had hoped to partner with a company that shared our values, especially concerning employees, customers and community. We believe Bliffert Lumber does that and more. A large firm that operates as a family-run business, Bliffert brings buying power and expertise that should allow Oostburg Lumber to operate as a premier supplier of building materials for many years to come.” Steve Vanderploeg, president, Oostburg Lumber Company.
“At Bliffert Lumber & Hardware, we are continually improving on the construction and home improvement experience for our customers across Wisconsin,” said Eli Bliffert, vice-president, Bliffert Lumber & Hardware. “Oostburg Lumber Company shares our focus on excellent service, and this partnership and location will provide our Sheboygan County customers with an improved range of services, products, and support. We firmly believe we are stronger together.”
