L-S Industries celebrates almost 50 years of expertise in protective packaging and materials. Founded in 1971 by Navy veteran Bill Hughes (as Lestra, Inc.), L-S Industries has been a trusted supplier of protective packaging to some of the largest companies in the world. While he still actively monitors the progress of the business, Bill turned the management reigns of the company over to Bonnie Finchum in 2004.
Serving the wire and cable industry, steel and aluminum industries, warehousing and distribution, automotive packaging and many other industrial packaging customers, we provide the finest selection of protective materials and packaging designs. Our extensive experience helps our customers make best choices for protecting their valuable products.
