Do you remember where you were and what was happening in 1993?
In 1993, the average yearly income was $31,230 and the average cost of a new home was $113,200. Gas was $1.16 per gallon and the average cost of a new car was $12,750. Wow, how things have changed since 1993.
You may be wondering why a company celebrating 50 years in business this year, would care about the year 1993. The reason is because in 1993, at Lapp Electric, we were celebrating our 24th Year in business and our newest division known as CSI.
