In 1964, Leon Wandler and Hank Barney founded what is now L&H Industrial. In the early 2000’s Leon’s sons who had worked in the business since their teens, officially joined the ownership team as the second generation of family leaders. Today, our third generation of family leadership has joined the company, Jason Percifield and Dustin Roush, grandsons of Leon. L&H’s family leadership continues to work together with our worldwide teams to build a future of growth and diversification focused on Quality, Safety, Service and Innovation. Pictured; Mike Wandler (left) and Jeff Wandler (center), along with Jim Clikeman (right), lead the global enterprise.
