Beta’s parent company, Crest Industries, is celebrating its 60-year anniversary with a display featuring a vintage truck linked to the company’s roots.
Crest’s Founder, the late Tucker Robison, opened Mid-State Electric in Alexandria, LA, in 1958. Mid-State would later be known as the first company of the Crest Industries family of companies.
The values and principles that make Crest Industries what it is today were established years before Tucker founded his first company. Honesty, integrity, respect and a mindset to question everything with an underlying desire of continuous improvement – those values became engrained in Tucker while growing up and working in his dad’s store, Lecompte Hardware.
This truck is the last that remains from the Lecompte Hardware fleet. The family had the 1961 Chevy restored for Tucker as a Christmas present not long before he died in 2015. The truck remains in the Robison family as a lasting memory of Crest’s early beginnings and as a reminder of the solid foundation on which it continues to build the Crest Industries family of companies.
