Our History

Our Story at Pine View Buildings

Growing up working in the fine furniture industry, it never occurred to me that you could get by with being anything less than the best. Customer satisfaction, an unparalleled product offering, a high code of ethics, and an attitude that nothing is impossible came standard.

The challenges of running a high-quality business had always been attractive and so in 1994, our real history began when I founded my own furniture company. Back then, as it is now, my motto was simply to run a business that placed quality of product and customer satisfaction first. Due to a move out-of-state in 2006, we were forced to sell the business, but stayed in the industry and began our first retail store, Countryside Cabinetry (now Countryside Amish Furniture), launching 3 websites to accommodate the various styles of furniture, and selling for dozens of fine furniture manufacturers. In addition, I also began and operated a construction company, building turn-key homes.

In those first few years, we quickly became an industry leader, shipping furniture all over the United States and the world, quickly growing our company and bringing about the need for additional resources to accommodate our sudden growth. In 2009, having a desire to get out and work with my growing boys, I sold Countryside Cabinetry. (A company that still thrives today.)

In 2009, uncertain and yet determined once again to be the best, we entered the storage building industry and began a storage building transportation company. We quickly noticed the lack of quality, lack of attention to detail, and shortage of customer and employee focus in the industry. So we deliberated, prayed, and then took the plunge. Thus in the beginning of 2013, Pine View Buildings was born.

On the morning of January 1, 2013, we were unsure about many things. But there was several things that we are still as sure about as we were on that cold, blistery morning.

We had a vision. 

A vision to start a company that had a goal of producing the highest quality in the industry, a vision of operating a storage building company that had a strong sense of godly principles and ethics in its relations to its employees and its customers. A vision that every customer, that every employee, that every person we come in contact with matters, and should be treated with respect and dignity. A vision to operate a business that would ultimately glorify God in everything it did.

In the beginning, we wanted to have a small family business, however, due to our focused goal of becoming a leader and innovator in our industry, we have now expanded to 4 states and are rapidly growing beyond.

We began with 2 series at the beginning, our Treated Series, and our DuraTemp series. Today our product line has more than doubled, and we’re just beginning. In 2016, one of our major goals saw fruition in the development of our most recent series. We had been desiring for some time to have an alternative to the treated building that had become the industry standard, as the fading problem for this series was not going to get better. After some time in development with a major supplier of barn panels, the Performance series was born, carrying a 10 year no fade warranty, and becoming an instant success! At this time, our Performance series is now outselling our Treated series, and many other manufacturers are now following our leadership in this area.

From our family to yours, Pine View Buildings is here to serve you, the customer, with industry-leading product offering, and we will always remain “Committed to Quality, and Excellence In Service!”

The Team

Hard-working People
Dedicated to Your Satisfaction

Ervin Helmuth

Founder/President/CEO

Coming from a background in construction and cabinetry, Ervin is well accustomed to the culture of quality in everything he accomplishes. His exuberant, passionate nature coupled with the attitude that nothing is impossible brings a sense of direction and purpose to everything he does. When he's not working at Pine View, he enjoys spending time with his family, and also has a special weakness in resisting the lure of fishing.

Freeman Helmuth

Information Technology & Finance

Being the oldest in a family of 10 (no easy chore), Freeman knows the value of hard work done right, and brings it to his duties as a technology and operations officer. His belief is that there's always a better and more efficient way of doing things, and once he's convinced of a fact, he has no fear of saying it. He also firmly believes that anything to do with mechanics, logic, or programming is just plain a lot of fun. When he's not putting in long days at Pine View, he enjoys spending time with friends and family, and thinks that fishing is quite simply the best thing ever.

Leon Helmuth

Operations Management

As Transportation and Logistics Manager, Leon is responsible for the efficiency, service quality, and speed of the production and delivery aspects of the purchase process. Managing the stresses of combining high quality and efficiency is what drives him to consistently attempt to think of new and innovative ways to approach traditional service, resulting in the joke that to motivate him, you only have to present an impossible challenge. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling, flying (he is a pilot), kayaking, and anything to do with the realm of music. Currently he is working on an instrument rating for his pilot's license, as well as studying piano, theory, and composition in the classical style.

Tony is a family man that enjoys spending time with wife Erica and his two sons, Dalton and Nathan. He usually can be found cheering on his son at a basketball game, enjoying his horses with his wife, or at an auction somewhere in a town no one has ever heard of.

Mark Schmitz

IT Support

Mark has a lifelong passion for all things computers and technology.  To the surprise of his parents, as a young child he would take apart anything screwed together to figure out how it worked.  This interest on the inner-workings of machines has carried over to computer programming.  He would rather build his own computer than buy one so when it didn’t work he could get the satisfaction of finding the root cause of the problem and fix it himself.  Before arriving at Pine View Buildings, he worked as a restaurant General Manager, and most recently a Medical Office Administrator.  When he is not busy solving other people’s technology problems, he enjoys the outdoors, hiking and camping with his wife and dog, and playing recent and not so recent video games.   

Braden Zittle

Compliance & Maintenance Manager

As the fourth oldest of thirteen homeschooled children, Braden has learned how to succeed in hectic, fast paced environments, and wear a smile as he does so. With a background in Hospitality and Marketing, Braden decided to step outside of his comfort zone to embrace a new and promising challenge as Compliance & Maintenance Manager and has enjoyed every minute of it. With his “Logic above everything” approach Braden loves creating and enacting innovative concepts that challenge reality and often stray outside of the realm of possibility. Braden would be considered a Batman enthusiast and a serial chips and salsa eater with a unique taste in socks (to wear not to eat). When asked to write his own bio Braden decided to exclusively refer to himself in the third person, to make it appear as though someone else was saying nice things about him.
