Cliff sold his shares to the other two partners in the mid 1970’s. Christiansen’s sold all of their shares to Bud in 1986, making him the sole owner. Bud would remain the sole owner until his son Mark started buying into the company in 1996. Upon Bud’s retirement in January of 2000, brothers Mark and Ryan purchased all stocks of Penro from their father and remain equal partners in the business today.
In 2003 Penro purchased their current shop/office building at 810 Industrial Road in Pender. The move made the company independent and allowed for significant growth. The last decade has seen Penro adapt from being strictly a pipe contractor into a more adaptable company with several specialties. Our construction specialties include excavation, sitework, utility installation, concrete formwork and flatwork, carpentry, and project management.
