Lapp Electric Turns 50 – Week 30 (Panel Shop, Golf Outings & Reliable)

Did you grow up reading the children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar? Or maybe you read it to your children?

This book, which has sold over 50 million copies worldwide is described as “one of the greatest childhood classics of all time“. 

You may be asking yourself why electricians would care about a 22-page children’s book?

Like Lapp Electric, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is celebrating 50 years this year. 

This book, which was published on June 3rd, 1969, is known worldwide and what many people think of when they think of classic children’s books. While our desire at Lapp Electric is not to be known worldwide, we would like to be known throughout Lancaster and surrounding counties as the electricians to turn to for anything you need at your home or business. 

It is amazing to think that Manny Lapp and Eric Carle (author and illustrator of A Very Hungry Caterpillar) both had a vision in 1969 and both probably had no idea of the success that would be achieved 50 years later.
