Lyman-Richey Corporation: 25 Years of Service

Our company can only be successful through the efforts of our employees, and we especially value the contributions of our long-term employees.

For decades, the 25 Year Club has been our way of providing special recognition to employees who reach this milestone with the company. Dwight G. Lyman, our company's namesake, is recognized as the first member of the club, having reached the 25-year mark in 1909.

Throughout our history, we have had more than 300 employees join this prestigious group, including many who are still actively employed today. We believe our experienced team is what sets us apart from other employers and is something for which we are very proud.

We extend our sincere appreciation to the employees listed here for their contributions to the success of our company.
