This Week’s Craft Talk

On the eve of LVC Companies’ 35th anniversary, Robbie Danko thought it would be appropriate to have a quiz on the company and its relationship to the Minneapolis Breakfast Club.

Some of the highlights were:

  • LVC (through J.N. Johnson owned by John Goodwyne) joined the Breakfast Club in 1974.
  • LVC has grown from three employees in 1982 to 202 employees in 2017.
  • LVC now has eight offices in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Arizona.
  • LVC offers Security Systems, Structured Cable, Fire Sprinklers, and Industrial Fire Protection.
