Steinwart Sales Corporation

Steinwart Sales Corporation was started in 1972 by J. Wells (Woody) Steinwart. 

His sons, Pete and Ed, took over the family business in 1989 and continued the tradition of great customer service. Ed retired at the end of 2019 and in early 2022, Pete's daughter-in-law, Emily, joined the team. Pete retired in June 2023. 


Pete Steinwart

Pete retired with 40 years of experience in the construction sales industry. After graduating from the University of Kansas in 1979, Pete began working in the family business with a focus on two-step distribution and the original big box stores like Payless Cashways and Sutherland Lumber. Throughout the years Steinwart Sales evolved

into commercial specification representatives with a focus on one-step distribution

and architectural support.

Pete lives in Overland Park with his wife and dog. He spends his well earned retirement

golfing, traveling and spending time

with his grandchildren.
