About Us

Pfendler  Post & Pole  
opened for business in April of 1985 by Leo and  Sherry Pfendler. Leo is a transplant from            Fryburg, Pennsylvania and moved to Montana in 1972. In August of 1975, he married a local girl, Sherry Skinner, who grew up on a ranch west of Hall, MT. They have three children – Jeremy, Christian, and Racquel. Leo began sawing timber on the right-of-way for the Bonneville Power Line in 1984, when he realized there was a need for a post and pole yard in the area, as there was none at that time. Leo and his wife Sherry purchased the post yard business during the winter of 1985-1986 and moved it to its current location on the east end of Drummond. The present site, just off of I-90 makes it a convenient location for suppliers and buyers alike. 

           Leo & Sherry’s son, Christian, had worked at the family business from an early age, and had always enjoyed the work. His goal had always been to one day run his parent’s business. Christian graduated with a certificate in Metals Technology from Helena College in 2002. He moved to Billings after graduation to work as a machinist for a heavy equipment repair company. While he was in Billings, he met and married his wife, Dorene. Christian’s expertise in equipment repair, welding, and fabrication, and his wife Dorene’s experience in finance and business management, would prove to be a dynamic addition to the Pfendler Post & Pole business model.Christian and his wife have four kids Erika, Elena, Orion, and Olivia. Together as a family they enjoy watching school functions, sporting events, and going four-wheeling in the mountains. 

         In 2011, after 26 years in business, Leo and Sherry made the decision to retire. At that time, Christian moved his family to the Drummond area to purchase the Post Yard and completed the purchase of shares in 2018.

         The business employs 10 full time people, including Dorene and Christian, and provides jobs for many self-employed cutters. The business supplies a variety of products, such as tree stakes, barky rails, posts, jack legs, doweled rail fencing, gates, and split rails.

                                We are proud to produce a premium product at an affordable price!
