On the verge of adding a fourth building in Albert Lea, the company received a special invitation in 1961 to establish a plant in Lake Mills, Iowa.

When later asked if he and his company were happy there, Oscar Larson said, “It was the smartest move I ever made.”

LARSON manufactured aluminum combination doors and windows, shutters, push bars, and awnings at its Lake Mills plant.

Oscar Larson had many fond memories of moving day. He just shook his head in amazement at the force of some thirty trucks and numerous businessmen and farmers who transferred the entire business to Lake Mills in one trip!
