Founded by S.Z. Schutte in 1880, Schutte Lumber Company remained a family owned operation and managed trust until 1997, when it was purchased by Daniel C. Fuhrman. On July 1st 2014, Michael D. Fuhrman purchased the business to continue the family owned tradition of Schutte Lumber Company. The traditions and our rich history are embraced and enhanced by their vision of the future of our company.

Schutte Lumber Company is widely known for our diverse inventory of common and not so common lumber and panel products. Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar timbers are supplied to lumber dealers throughout the Midwest. And with a complement of boards and dimension lumber in many species and sizes to complete the sale, Schutte Lumber Company can meet our customer’s needs right out of our 13 acre lumberyard.

Schutte Lumber Company has an on-site mill that specializes in matching patterns that are hard to find, as well as producing stock patterns that are used in many applications. Most patterns can be produced in nearly every specie of hardwoods or softwoods in our inventory, or if we do not have the one you want, we can order it. Schutte Lumber Company buys from the highest quality producers of lumber products, to assure that we provide our customers with the finest from the forest.

But having a large inventory alone has not brought Schutte Lumber Company the success we have enjoyed for over 135 years. The Schutte Sales Team and support staff consists of many knowledgeable, professional associates who can boast of 15, 20, even 25 years or more in the industry. Let us put our experience and dedication to your satisfaction to work for you
