East Perry Lumber Co. is located in Southeast Missouri in the town of Frohna. East Perry was founded by Marvin F. Petzoldt in 1945. The company started as a small portable mill making railroad ties and barn lumber. Today we manufacture about 15 million board feet of lumber annually and have a kiln drying capacity of about 650,000 board feet. East Perry Lumber continues to be a family business owned and operated by the second and third generations of Marvin’s family. In addition, we have a strong employee base of about 85 who work hard and are committed to doing their part in providing a well-manufactured and consistent product that has built East Perry Lumber’s quality reputation.
