Our corporate history
It all started more than 60 years ago when two friends from high school joined together to start a business that operated out of the former Ebeling Dairy building in Almont, Michigan. Bob Ligon and Gene Lane started making small trim clip prototypes in Gene’s home oven and, over time, turned this small two-person operation into a multinational corporation. From the start, Bob and Gene generated a strong foundation of values that have carried on throughout L&L's history. Today we pride ourselves on Being a Good Place for All Who Touch it, which includes employees, customers, suppliers, and the local communities.
