History of Spring Lake Park Lumber

Spring Lake Park Lumber Company has been in business for over 65 years. Our business is selling and delivering quality lumber and building products to homeowners and construction companies in the metro area.

The company started out very small, receiving lumber and other products via boxcars. These boxcars were hand unloaded and directly distributed to construction sites in the area. As the community continued to grow in the 1950's so did Spring Lake Park Lumber Company. We eventually opened our doors to the public and added a showroom that had an "Idea Center", paint department, hardware items and architectural services. We promoted the company as a complete full-service lumberyard and retail store.

From the time Spring Lake Park Lumber Company first opened their doors back in 1951, there has been three owners: George Herda, Russell (Buzz) Francen, and Dann Francen. Some of our current employees have over 20 years of employment. Recently three employees have retired with over 40 years of employment.

After several good years, the lumberyard outgrew its space and needed to expand. So in 1997 a new facility was built by Gold Star Builders and was opened in early 1998. It has a main floor size of approximately 18,000 square feet and an additional 3,000 square feet on the upper lever. Currently, Home Planning & Associates, Inc. occupies an office in our upper level. They provide excellent custom residential designs for new homes as well as remodeling, additions, and restorations. For more information on Home Planning, please click HERE.

Our goal is to continue to sell quality lumber. With that in mind, the majority of our construction lumber is purchased from the western United States and Canada mills through local wholesalers. These wholesalers receive their lumber from mills that have reputations of producing excellent lumber. The trees that the lumber comes from are larger resulting in boards that are more stable which makes less waste overall for a building project.

To date, Spring Lake Park Lumber Company sells a variety of lumber materials to area homeowners, remodelers and new homebuilders, as well as commercial builders. We have a showroom which displays samples of windows, doors, siding, shingles, deck materials, railing systems, millwork samples, door and window hardware, brochures and miscellaneous building products. Please stop by and see us!
