“This three generation Lisbon business is an example of a successful family-owned company that has stood the test of time over the past half century, growing from a mom and pop firm to more than 33 employees,” said State Sen. Patty Senator Ritchie, who has presented the business a resolution honoring the 25th anniversary.
