ROCKFORD, Ill. — Greenlee will commemorate its 140th anniversary as an organization with a year-long celebration beginning Jan. 1, 2002.

“We are planning a year's worth of events with monthly activities and a grand celebration in mid-August of 2002,” said Craig Gleason, president of Greenlee's management advisory team. “We look forward to a fun and productive 140th anniversary year.”

The company has several new initiatives and products for end users and electrical distributors that will be introduced in conjunction with its 140th year celebration.

In 1862, Robert and Ralph Greenlee formed Greenlee Brothers and Co. and expanded their barrel-making business into other manufacturing venues, known today as Greenlee.
