Our Distribution System
In general, our buildings are available through a large network of independent, locally owned Lester Building Dealers. In parts of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois, company-employed Territory Managers oversee sales and service. Where you build determines your distributor.

Your local independent Lester dealer/representative is:

Craig Nieland Derby, KS

Craig Nieland

Main Contact:Area Manager

Craig refers to his current position with Lester Buildings as his “second tour of duty”.  He originally worked with us from 1978 to 1987. In June 2012 (yes, 25 years later!) he gladly accepted our invitation to return to Lester as an Area Manager in the Central U.S.

Craig has decades of experience in sales and management, including Morton Buildings, “big box” centers, and as a training consultant with Dale Carnegie Training. He is proud of the personal qualities and experience he delivers.  “I’m personally very passionate and dedicated to my work.  When it takes a long day to get things done, and done right, I get it done.”

Originally from a Minnesota dairy farm, Craig splits his time between Derby, Kansas and McKinney, Texas, which he and his wife Janice call home.  He’s a sports fan and enjoys vacationing with family at the “bookends” of the country - Minnesota and the Texas Gulf Coast.
