Starting with one extruder, they began life by making PVC sleeves for electronic crimp connectors. After a couple of years Lakeland had grown to the point that they moved operations to a much larger facility in Bensenville, IL.
In early 1993 the company was acquired by Christopher J. Arendt, son of Richard, thus guaranteeing a second generation of Arendt stewardship.
