In the fall of 1957, Alvin Meyer and George Greaser started Dorchester Pole Yard. The business was located in the village of Dorchester, Wisconsin just east of Meyer Manufacturing Corporation, a farm equipment manufacturer owned by Alvin Meyer. Meyer Manufacturing built a pole peeler for Dorchester Pole Yard of which started production of peeling poles for the local contractors who used the poles in the construction of “pole” frame buildings.
George managed the business and soon carried a full line of pole type building materials. In April of 1963, they incorporated the business and called it Dorchester Pole Yard, Inc. In 1967, they discontinued processing poles and started using square timbers. In 1975, Alvin Meyer passed away suddenly and George sold his shares of the business to Alvin’s two sons Larry and Don, and his daughter Judy. These three owners continued to grow and expand the business of supplying and constructing Post and Stud frame buildings for the next 25 years. In 2006, Jeff Meyer, son of Don Meyer, was hired to aid in the management of the company.
In 2007, the company celebrated its 50th anniversary. With this, it was decided that the name of the company would be changed to Meyer Buildings, Inc. This name, we felt, was a symbol representing quality and service to our customers and unified our “building” with our name.
In 2009, after 25 years of ownership, Larry, Don and Judy Meyer sold their shares of the company to Jeff and Troy Meyer and Karla Fish. These three currently maintain ownership of the company.
