Lippert Components of Elkhart, Ind., is celebrating 60 years in business.
LCI was founded in 1956 by Lawrence (Larry) Lippert and began as a galvanized and aluminum roofing business for the manufactured housing industry. Today, the business has evolved into an industry leader of premium components to the RV, manufactured housing, trailer, bus, marine, and heavy truck industries.
A week-long celebration for LCI employees will be held the week of May 16 to 20 to commemorate the company’s 60th year in business.
Guided by three generations of family leadership, LCI has grown tremendously over the past 60 years. To date, the company operates 45 facilities throughout the United States and in Canada and Italy, and employs more than 7,000 people who work together to bring innovative products and world-class service to its customers.
LCI has completed more than 40 acquisitions in the past 16 years, and has grown to become a $1.4 billion revenue company.
“LCI has become the company it is today because of people, both inside and outside our organization,” said Jason Lippert, CEO of Lippert Components and Drew Industries. “To our employees, past and present, thank you for your tireless efforts to make LCI great. I want to especially thank our customers who have stuck with us through good times and bad. At LCI, we have always put our customers first, building long-lasting relationships built on trust, and I think that really shows today.”
