There is a great subject. This company is *ripe* for an in-depth investigation.
1. ILC Dover was purchased by Stanley Warner Corporation (a movie theatre holding company) from 1954 and was merged with Glen Alden (also a movie theatre holding company) from 1969 to 1972.*
*remember those dates? Oh yeah, now I remember! That was Richard Nixon's first term as president!
International Latex was purchased by Stanley Warner, the former theater holdings of Warner Bros., in 1954.
Stanley Warner merged with fellow theater company Glen Alden in 1968, which merged with Rapid-American in 1972. Source en.wikipedia.org...
2. ILC Dover worked by feast or famine, they worked exclusively on government (military industrial and NASA) contracts. In 1968, 98% of their business came from making Apollo space suits (15 suits were needed for every mission). They have been making space suits for NASA for 45 years. No other American company has ever made a space suit that was used in a space mission.
3. 1982 Rapid American sold ILC Industries to Mr. Leonard Lane. "The Lane family still owns the company today. "
However, I would admit, that the nasa.gov/spacesuits.pdf is an old document, probably early 1990's? and it is possible that LL doesn't own the company any longer. I don't know yet.
The ILC Dover official website was not much helpful in finding the names of the current owners of the company.
I searched (last night) for over an hour and found only one lead for "Mr. Leonard Lane".
It was an EPA Superfund document scanned from "NOV. 21 1990" a government pdf and he was listed as Chairman of the Board for ILC Dover as of the early 1990's. Attachment 1 is a list of all the company CEO's who were legally obliged to respond to the EPA Superfund Site decision on their properties.
See this nice scan of a government EPA letter addressed to land holders who are potentially responsible for environmental clean up costs. pdf amcadminrec.com...
It's very interesting to draw out the history of ILC Dover by a google search and to a) illustrate exactly how that company evolved from the 1940's up until today and b) discover the timing of certain events. This is always a good thing for conspiracy investigations.
