STENERSON BROS. LUMBER CO. Five generations of Family Business On the Level Stenerson Lumber began in 1889 at the hands of three young Norwegian brothers. Emigrating in 1885, Sven, Gunder and Knute Stenerson purchased forty acres of wooded land near Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. While cutting wood for heating and cooking, they discovered that many of the trees were large enough for processing into lumber. The men sawed these trees into dimension lumber and sold the boards to their neighbors. As the brothers grew more successful, they expanded their trade into nearby towns. The rest is history. To date, over 134 years of good times and bad, droughts and floods, recessions, depressions, and booms, city growth and decline…all supplying building materials through 45 different stores in West-Central Minnesota and Eastern North Dakota. The Stenerson family has been at the helm for five generations. They still celebrate the same commitment to quality that has been important to their customers since day one.

Business on the Level is their motto and they define it with their commitment to their core values of Competency, Character, Consistency and Care. They feel that building relationships with their customers is key. At each store, you’ll find dedicated, knowledgeable professionals with 20, 30 and even 40+ years of experience in the building industry. Striking that delicate balance of tradition and technology, Stenerson Lumber has been a trusted resource for homebuilders, local businesses and homeowners for decades. Humbled by that trust, they are proud to know they’ve been an integral part of building the FMWF and surrounding communities. No project is too big or too small for Stenerson Lumber.
