Littfin Lumber Co


Littfin Lumber Company started in Winsted, MN in 1962. It began as a supplier of building materials to local contractors and the general public. In 1963, that was expanded to include sales of complete buildings, and crews were added for construction and remodeling. By 1964, a small manufacturing plant was built to make wood pallets.

In 1971 the company started manufacturing engineered wood trusses with a home-made jig capable of 50 trusses per week. While most of these were used for their own building crews, a market was developing throughout the nation for engineered wood trusses. They soon began providing trusses throughout the Midwest through a Lumber Dealer network. By 1979 they had outgrown their manufacturing facilities and began construction of a new, state of the art, 48,000 square foot manufacturing facility on 105 acres one mile west  of  Howard Lake, MN. Due to rapid growth, an 11,000 square foot saw room addition was added in the mid 80's. Continued growth in sales throughout the 90's has required expansion of our facilities which are currently near 140,000 square feet and capable of producing over 3000 trusses per day. 

By using state of the art technology in engineering software and manufacturing equipment, and employing the finest quality personnel, they have become the largest truss plant in the nation. They are committed to providing unmatched quality, service and value to their customers. Littfin Truss uses quality materials in all products that they manufacture. They use both visually graded and Machine Stress Rated lumber from the United States and Canada. They have one of the most experienced staffs of professional designers in the country that can design and engineer products to meet your specifications.

By using Roof Trusses instead of conventional framing, there is a significant savings in the amount of material needed to do the job. Labor costs are also reduced as a properly designed system requires much less time to complete than conventional framing. Because trusses can be designed to span long distances, the need for interior bearing walls and footings can be eliminated in most cases.
