LeVecke and his sons, Reed and Neil LeVecke.

Their commitment to quality, service, and fairness in pricing seems like the perfect ingredients to our business plan throughout Europe giving both companies a strategic advantage with American export products, especially considering the U.S. Dollar to EURO exchange rate," Griffith concluded.
