Remuda is a post frame builder and building material supplier headquartered in Rocky View County, AB. The business was founded by Steve Schouten in 2014 to better serve the needs of customers who wanted a broader range of services related to the construction of post frame buildings.

Today, Remuda is known across the prairies for the quality of its post frame buildings, unique finishings, distinct designs, and extraordinary customer service. The staff at Remuda pride themselves on rising to challenges and delivering on promises.

Now rebranded as Remuda Supplies, we are located at the same location in Rocky View County. As part of the Remuda family, Remuda Supplies is dedicated to making it easier for contractors in Southern Alberta to source and receive the building materials they need.
