Foster Planing Mill History
Foster Planing Mill was founded in 1922 by Henry Butzer, and was at that time called "Butzer Planing Mill". Throughout its 90 years of operation in the southern part of Los Angeles, the company has operated under only 4 owners and the current President/owner is Bob Stanley, who took over 26 years ago from his father. The company has a tremendous following of loyal customers across the country who seem to enjoy the warm-hearted feel of a family environment, paired with expert quality and precision. Our standards are high and our customers appreciate not having to pay a fortune for the type of quality we produce.
