Laidig hosts open house in Mishawaka

Approximately 250 people toured the manufacturing facilities of Laidig Systems Inc. in Mishawaka, Ind., during an open house May 4-6. The focus of the event was a new blast-cleaning and powder-coat painting system for large steel components. As one of the largest such systems in the U.S., it is designed for components up to 80 feet in length. During the dedication ceremony held at the plant in May, the company's founder, Jon Laidig, presented the company with a painting depicting four generations of the Laidig family-Jon; Jon's son, Wyn, who is now company president; Wyn's son, Daniel, who joined the company three years ago and works as an engineer; and Daniel's young son, Gabriel. "The portrait illustrates the continuity of the company and our dedication to remain in business strongly for many years to come," said Senior Vice President Roger Laidig.
