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:

Larry Schwendemann Starbuck, MN

Larry Schwendemann

Main Contact:Territory Manager

MN License # BC487784

Larry has surpassed the 25-year mark with Lester Buildings. After earning his degree in architectural drafting, he joined the company in 1988. Eager to learn more, he advanced through positions on a Lester construction crew, in Lester’s manufacturing plant and in customer service.
As a territory manager, there isn’t much he doesn’t know about building – and building well. He’s dedicated to exceeding customer expectations with, as he states, “high quality products at a fair price”.
Larry is originally from Benson, MN. He’s married to his high school sweetheart and they have two grown children. Active in the community, Larry is a retired church council member and a current volunteer teacher for firearms safety. He enjoys quality time with his family, friends and being in the outdoors hunting and fishing.
