Stacy Ann Lynn, the great grand-daughter of the company’s founder is the current CEO/President of the company, which is still a family owned business. The previous several years have been especially difficult due to price-pressure from Chinese imports. At the moment, all that Stacy believes she can do is to try to keep the company running until the economy improves. But, the company needs an immediate infusion of cash. So, she has decided to ask her bank for a large line of credit to maintain operating viability for the foreseeable future.
