A century and four generations later, J. Lyne Roberts & Sons Inc. sticks to its commitment to quality.
THE J. LYNE ROBERTS & SONS INC. (JLR) story starts with a young man in the early 1900s and a high school teacher who knew talent when he saw it.
J. Lyne Roberts Sr.’s high school shop teacher was so pleased with his student’s handiwork that the teacher hired the young man to build his own home. By 1912, the budding builder had established his own company, with an aim to look to quality and integrity as the guideposts, his great-grandson and current company Vice President Scott Roberts says.
