The History of Lichty Brothers, Inc.
Lichty Brothers, Inc. was originally founded by two brothers, Milton and Martin Lichty in 1941. The two brothers quickly outgrew their first location, a simple barn, and built their first shop nearby to their house in the small town of Terre Hill. The shop in Terre Hill was constructed as a two-floor building and housed the auto body portion of the business on the bottom floor, with the mechanical side of the business on the upper floor.
In 2001, future owner, Luke Miller started working for the business as an entry level tech assistant and prep boy. Without wasting much time, he quickly became the painter and also moved in to a body tech role.
A few years later, Robert was ready to retire from the business and asked Luke and Larry Horst to assume his shares. So, in 2004, Luke and Larry Horst (grandson to Milton), along with Ronald, became the new owners of Lichty Brothers. Current owner, Landon Horst, started working for the business in 2005 as a technician assistant.
