In 1970, Joe Lamanna and his wife Lucy started G&L, using a single truck to deliver concrete and stone. Through honest hard work and excellent customer service, their business prospered and grew significantly. Over the years, new partners and family members have joined with Joe to expand and create the G&L Group of Companies that we know today. Over 50 years later, the company is still a proudly family-owned business and great Canadian success story.

Pat Lamanna, Joe's son, founded Draglam Salt in 1991. G&L benefits from his impressive experience and knowledge of all aspects of construction engineering technology as Pat has been in the industry for over 40 years, (he operated his first loader at age 13). Over the years he has taken on a variety of roles, from operating machinery to designing custom solutions to negotiating and managing growth initiatives for G&L Group of Companies. Today, he is responsible for strategic planning to drive the company's long-term success.
