Lester Buildings is a leading manufacturer and builder of custom pre-engineered, post-frame building systems for farm, livestock, equine, hobby, and commercial purposes. For over 65 years, Lester has been the go to builder for farmers and ranchers.  Today, pre-engineered wood-frame systems are one of the fastest growing construction methods for low-rise commercial buildings. What sets Lester apart? Three things: a professional, collaborative planning experience from concept to completion; customization; and value.

True to its roots, Lester Buildings remains a privately held, locally owned company. Each owner-partner is a hands-on employee who values hard work, loyalty and respect. Lester Buildings takes great pride in employing generations of hard-working local citizens – with no dress code required!


Founded in 1947 in Columbus, Georgia, as Steel Builders, Inc., a small regional fabricator taking part in the post-World War II economic boom, the Company was renamed American Buildings Company and relocated in 1964 to its current headquarters in Eufaula, Alabama. Over the years, American has enjoyed a dynamic growth history, as dynamic as the metal buildings industry itself. In 2007, American Buildings Company was acquired by Nucor Corporation, a Fortune 500 Company. Nucor and affiliates are manufacturers of steel products, with operating facilities primarily in the U.S. and Canada.
