Our History

The Yoder family has been in the contracting business on the Iron Range for over 25 years, operating as Yoder Construction Inc. “We have years of experience in the building industry and have a great reputation of quality work and satisfied clients. When the opportunity came up to buy Erickson Lumber, we decided to move in that direction and use our experience as contractors to better meet the needs of contractors. We are committed to providing contractors with the quality products and service that they need to be successful.”


Yoder Building Supplies is a locally owned, family run business. Jerry and Trenda, along with sons, Robin, and Pat, are all working hard to help your project succeed. Roger Kearney and John Miller, have many years of managing experience in the building supply industry and have maintained their positions in our transition. We are blessed to have had the majority of staff make the transition with us to Yoder Building Supplies and enjoy working alongside them in the business.

Commitment to Our Community

We aim to support local contractors and homeowners with their building construction needs. We want to be accessible to all people who desire to make home improvements happen. We are happy to sponsor several local youth sports programs within the area because we know that youth sporting events build leadership qualities in our youth and allows us to give back to those we serve. In addition, we are proud to sponsor Access North’s program for disabled hunters, Habitat for Humanity, and many other projects that give back to our community.
