Celebrating its 70th year in business, LMC Industries is a metals-and plastics-processing company that produces a wide variety of automotive safety-related products, as well as products for electronics, agriculture and healthcare. Its competencies include metal stamping, welding, automated assembly, injection molding, over-molding of metal and other products with engineered glass-filled resin, as well as automated assemblies that include combinations of metal and plastic.
LMC Industries was founded in 1945 by Fred Sullentrop Sr. and his wife Rose. They eventually brought some of their children and grandchildren into the business, many of whom still serve the company in some way. Paul Lemke joined the company as an outside board member eight years ago; he took on the role of CEO and president six years later. Lemke has vast industry knowledge and experience, having worked as a toolmaker’s apprentice after high school while he worked on a degree in engineering and then an MBA from Vanderbilt University.
