Who We Are & Our History

Established in 1959 by Abram K. Penner and his two sons, Penn-Co began as a small farm based logging operation near the village of Blumenort, Manitoba, approximately thirty miles southeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In the 1980’s and 90’s, Ernie Penner expanded Penn-Co to new locations throughout Canada and the United States including Calgary, Toronto, Minneapolis and Raleigh. Although the head office has always been located in Blumenort, Penn-Co has successfully completed projects from Ontario to British Columbia as well as in Minnesota, Nebraska and North Carolina. We look forward to putting this experience to work for you.
