LBS Marks 100th Anniversary

LBS, Des Moines, Iowa, recently celebrated its 100th anniversary by inviting the local Des Moines community for a celebration event with self-guided tours of two of their manufacturing facilities, food trucks, live music and more.

During the celebration, the community also was given the opportunity to hear from speakers, including Scot Storjahann, IA/NE ESOP chapter president and LBS trustee; Jay Fairfield, HF group president; Rob Mauritz, LBS president and CEO; Linda Westergaard, Eastside Councilmember; and Fritz James, former owner, president and CEO of LBS.

“Not only are we proud to have been in business for 100 years, but we are grateful to continue to serve and support Des Moines for over a century,” Mauritz said. “Local businesses represent the backbone of our community, which is why we were honored to give back to the East Side Library to celebrate our centennial year.”
