Sun Mountain Lumber, Inc. is a privately-held, family owned forest products company based in rural Deer Lodge, Montana. The company was formed in the spring of 2004 when Sherm and Bonnie Anderson of Deer Lodge acquired the stud mill and finger joint facilities formerly owned by Louisiana Pacific Corporation. Sun Mountain Lumber, Inc. is the largest private employer in the Deer Lodge Valley and helps keep the local economy thriving. We are a proud participant in local charitable community work through donations of money, materials, and labor.
Sun Mountain Lumber, Inc. operates two manufacturing facilities in Deer Lodge, a solid stud mill and a finger joint plant. In addition to the manufacturing facilities, Sherm has owned and operated Sun Mountain Logging, LLC since 1976 and more recently started a construction company (Sun-Up Ventures, LLC) in 2001. Sherm has been active in the timber industry since the late 60’s driving log truck at the age of 15 for his father’s logging crew. He has served as President of The American Loggers Council and has earned numerous awards and recognitions from various business and industry associations. In 2003, he served a term in the Montana State Legislature as a Senator representing the areas of Deer Lodge and Helena.

Most of the raw material for our fingerjointing process is supplied by our own planer with a small amount coming from outside sources. Primary lumber production includes no prior select kiln dried studs and finger joint studs.
