Lippmann experienced a tremendous loss when Robert Turner passed away in September after a courageous battle with cancer. Robert joined Lippmann-Milwaukee in 1990 as VP of sales. He was appointed President in 1998.
Robert ran the business with a goal of offering superior customer service as well as the highest quality product in the industry. The company has grown exponentially under the leadership of Mr. Turner.
Robert leaves behind a company second to none. He developed a culture focused on customer satisfaction, quality, and building long-term relationships. That spirit will continue in his honor.
Lippmann will continue to move forward as a family-owned business under the same values and standards as Robert established over the last 27 years. His greatest legacy is the talent and commitment of the team he developed. We will honor Robert by continuing his passion and drive for Lippmann.
