L&L Special Furnace Announces New Ownership

The assets of L&L Special Furnace Co, Inc. have been acquired by Specialized Thermal Solutions, Inc. Operations will continue under the L&L Special Furnace name, with David Cunningham serving as owner and President.

Since its beginnings in 1946 as a kiln manufacturer by a pottery entrepreneur and her husband, L&L has undergone many changes, including its relocation in 1979 to a new and larger facility that allowed it to focus on high-end, specialty industrial furnaces.

Gregory Lewicki, son of L&L's founders, began at the company after completing his B.A. from Hobart College in 1973. Together with his brother, Stephen, he purchased L&L Special Furnace Co., Inc. from their father and moved to a new plant in Aston in 1979. The company grew under the leadership of the two brothers, and in the mid-1990s the pair was able to buy their father's pottery kiln company as well. In 2012, Gregory purchased Stephen's share of L&L Special Furnace Co., Inc., Stephen acquired Gregory's share of L&L Kiln Mfg., Inc., and the two companies became separate entities.

David Cunningham has been with L&L Special Furnace Co., Inc. since December 2005. In his initial role, he focused on furnace design and purchasing while attending Drexel University in the evenings. Cunningham graduated from Drexel in 2009 with a B.S. in applied mechanical engineering, to go along with his A.A.S. in architecture/civil engineering from Pennsylvania Institute of Technology (2003) and A.A.S. in robotics/automated manufacturing from Delaware County Community College (2009). In 2010, he assumed the majority of the furnace design role, handling mechanical design, electrical schematics, controller programming and some field service. In 2021, Cunningham was appointed General Manager of L&L Special Furnace Co., Inc, the title he currently holds.

Aside from the name change, everything else about L&L Special Furnace will remain the same. All contact info and email addresses will remain the same. Specialized Thermal Solutions will be absorbing all of L&L Special Furnace Co., Inc.'s order history and will continue to service any of its products.
