In 1966, Ernest G. “Pete” Peterson and a small group of investors formed Lansing Lumber, Inc. and opened for business at 211 North Main Street. Pete acted as general manager and grew the company into a well‐respected anchor of the business community.
By the early 1980’s, Pete and his wife Barbara had become sole shareholders of the company. They were joined by their son Jon who helped guide the company to continued growth and success.
In 1998, the Peterson’s son Patrick joined the company establishing the home plan design and drafting division of the family business. Patrick was also appointed as Vice President and sales manager while Jon became President and operations manager. This allowed Pete and Barbara to step back and enjoy retirement while their sons took over the day to day operations of the company.
The Peterson brothers grew the company over the next decade, continuing the tradition of providing quality building products and exceptional service. The company enjoyed record sales and success throughout much of the 2000’s. In early 2013, tragedy struck when Jon was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He bravely fought for months but sadly succumbed to his disease in March 2014. It was a devastating blow to the company.
Patrick assumed the helm of President and forged ahead with the help of his long‐time employees and the support of his family. Along with the many years of experience working alongside his father and brother, Patrick is also an educated and trained residential designer and fully licensed building contractor. His knowledge and commitment to customer service continue to be the basis on which the company is operated.
In 2017, Patrick’s wife Leslie joined the company and spear‐headed the company’s newest offering – animal nutrition products. This division of the company has experienced rapid growth which is directly attributed to Leslie’s vast knowledge and dedication to her clients. Focusing on quality animal nutrition and specialty products for equine, canine, cattle and other animal needs, Lansing Lumber Farm & Feed is proving to be a destination company for animal owners in northeast Kansas and beyond!
