Multi-Craft Inc. was founded in 1946 four WWII veterans. Each possessed specific skills in different areas . . . metal, leather, plastic and wood. Hence the name Multi-Craft. Over the years, one man – Emil Lachenmeier – with an optimistic vision of the future and a passion for his field of plastics, became the major stockholder in the company and renamed it Multi-Craft Plastics.
We are now in the third generation of ownership. Emil and Grace Lachenmeier’s son, Richard is President and CEO. His three sons, Kevin, Carey and Kyle, are VP’s and manage oversight of all three locations – Portland OR, Eugene OR and Kent WA. They, along with Kevin’s wife, Kristi, are working daily to serve our Pacific Northwest customers.
In May of 2021, we will celebrate our 75th anniversary in business, with an appreciation for our past achievements and excitement about our future challenges. We thank you for your patronage and look forward to working with you in the future.--The Staff of Multi-Craft Plastics, Inc.
