LEDA Honors Company Milestones
|Paul Haynes said the only reason Haynes Dairy had remained in business for over a century was that it was a family affair. "My grandfather started it, and when my daddy got out of the military, he took over. Both my sons, Cain and Richie, have worked with me. I'll soon be 70 and if my health remains good, I plan to do it a while longer."|
The Lincoln Economic Development Association (LEDA) held its annual Milestone Awards program at Lincoln Country Club Wednesday (March 20th).
The Milestone Awards are presented to manufacturers and distributors marking their years in business in Lincolnton and Lincoln County and marking their 5th, 10th, 15th, etc. anniversaries here.
Haynes Dairy was honored for 105 years in business, NC Spinning for 55 years, Leonard Automatics for 50 years, and Blum, Inc. and the Timken Company for 40 years in Lincoln County. Other companies were given plaques marking their years in business here--from five to 30.
Representative Patrick McHenry attended the program and commented that he was pleased to see the diversity of industries that are in operation in Lincolnton and Lincoln County. "It's important to celebrate new businesses and industries who decide to locate here," he said, "but it's equally important or perhaps more important to recognize those who have been contributing to the community with jobs and civic involvement for many years."
Joe Lampron, chairman of the board of LEDA, said the purpose of the awards is to recognize and thank local industry for their past, present ahnd future commitment to Lincolnton and Lincoln County.
