Lufkin ,Tx — Lufkin Industries’ top executive this past week gave an update on the company’s local and worldwide operations, saying the company has basically doubled in size since 2010.
The comments by Jay Glick, president and CEO of the Lufkin-based company, came during the annual Industry Appreciation event sponsored by the Lufkin 4B Economic Development Corporation and the Lufkin/Angelina County Economic Development Partnership.
