Lacks Community and Culture

A History of Moving the Industry Forward

Over five decades of innovative leadership

Lacks started with a family’s vision. When John P. Lacks partnered with his son Richard Lacks in 1961, the idea was to build success manufacturing die-cast products for a local supplier. Their passion for innovation and their reputation for quality set Lacks on a half-century’s worth of growth and expansion.
