Kodiak’s Christensen Lumber celebrates 100 years

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. — Kodiak Building Partners and Christensen Lumber Company announced Christensen’s 100th anniversary as a building materials business serving Nebraska’s home builders and contractors with lumber, engineered components, millwork, windows, and other building products.

Christensen Lumber Company was originally founded as Luehrs-Christensen Coal & Lumber Company on March 23, 1923, in Fremont, Nebraska by Alfred F. Christensen and Robert A. Leuhrs when the pair purchased a coal and lumber facility. In 1943, Luehrs retired and sold his interests to Christensen and the company became known as Christensen Lumber & Coal before changing its name for a final time in 1955 to Christensen Lumber Company when coal was dropped from the Christensen product lineup.

Throughout the next 50 years, David and Tom Christensen continued to enhance facilities including trusses, components, drawing and estimation, millwork and door, and a Home Center.
