The Lynch Corporation was a manufacturing company, incorporated in 1928 to take over two predecessor companies, The Lynch Glass Machinery Company (founded in 1917) and a sales and engineering company. In 1934, Lynch moved its headquarters from Columbus, Ohio to Anderson, Indiana. From 1933 to 1984, it purchased a number of other companies, adding numerous other products. Among its operations were manufacturing glass containers, automotive parts, wrapping machines and specialized machinery, all serving food industries. It also became involved in phonographs in 1960 and telecommunications in 1989. It is now known as the LGL Group and is incorporated under the laws of the state of Delaware.In 1939, the Lynch Corporation was taken to court as part of a much larger antitrust action. The case was argued during 1941-1942, then appealed by the Hartford-Empire Company, et al. The case was sent to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1943. Sources: "Lynch Corporation." Reference for Business.
