Leonard Manufacturing Resources was started in 1984 and took big steps to grow the company in 1989 when they launched B.T.L. Industries as a contract manufacturer with 20 employees to service a large global company. B.T.L. Industries continued to grow with a cutting edge product technology developed by the client at the time. With a dedicated customer and a dedicated product line, B.T.L. Industries developed a unique approach to client / customer relations that is realized to this day.
B.T.L. Industries is now part of the Leonard Manufacturing Resources group of companies, which are dedicated to contract manufacturing and services for manufacturers.
From the beginning, Leonard Manufacturing Resources’ strategy has been to develop client relationships that allow us all to meet our objectives. We recognize that our clients, future and present, have different needs, so we identify how Leonard Manufacturing Resources (LMR) can become a strategic partner in order to fulfill those needs. This approach has allowed us to continue to grow alongside our clients, as LMR now employs over 200 people.
The founder of the holding company, Terry Leonard, first started his own business in 1963 in men’s retail clothing. Leonard always placed an emphasis on his customer and valued customer service above anything else. It is this ideology that remains steadfast today after more than 50 years.
