Louis E. Page, Inc. - A Legacy of Innovation and Dedication
Established in 1893
Louis E. Page, Inc. has a rich and storied history that dates back to its humble beginnings in 1893 when its founder, Louis Everett Page, embarked on a journey that would ultimately shape its destiny. Born into a family deeply rooted in agriculture, Louis left school after completing the 6th grade to assist with the family farm. During these formative years, he recognized a unique opportunity in the bustling city of Boston.
In an era when horses were the primary mode of transportation for delivering goods, Louis identified a niche market. Horses, essential for pulling wagons and carriages, needed sustenance, and thus, Louis E. Page began its journey by supplying hay to companies relying on these noble beasts. Louis's vision and entrepreneurial spirit quickly gained recognition, and the business flourished.
However, progress marched forward, and as gasoline-powered vehicles began to replace horse-drawn carriages, Louis E. Page adapted to meet the changing needs of its customers. With a keen eye for innovation, the company shifted its focus to providing essential products for farmers, supporting them in their tireless efforts to feed the nation.
The watershed moment in the company's history came during World War II when the demand for hay experienced a seismic shift. Recognizing the evolving landscape, Louis E. Page diversified its offerings, introducing wire fencing products to address the growing need for enclosure solutions. This strategic decision propelled the company into a new era and solidified its reputation as an industry leader.
Louis and his sons worked tirelessly, side by side, to guide the company for generations. Louis's passing in 1957 marked a poignant moment in the company's history, but his legacy lived on in the business he had built from the ground up.
In 1970, a new chapter began with the arrival of Martin Hitchcock, husband to the granddaughter of Louis E. Page. Martin's dedication and vision breathed fresh life into the company, setting the stage for continued growth and success.
In 1975, Duncan Page, Louis’s grandson, and brother-in-law to Martin, joined the business. Duncan possessed an extraordinary passion for the company's customers, often regaling stories of the colorful characters who visited the warehouse to procure wire and fencing materials. His unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction became a hallmark of the Louis E. Page experience. As a visionary, Duncan saw the need and potential of adding a web presence for the company. He developed the website and started blogging to provide great information for their customers.
In 2010, I, Duncan’s wife, Debbie, approached him about joining the company. As a registered nurse and lactation consultant, I ran my company, The New Born Baby, which served breastfeeding mothers and babies. At first, Duncan laughed at my request, saying he didn’t think husband and wife should work together. A year later, my brother Rick convinced Duncan to create “The Dream Team”: Duncan, Rick, and Debbie. I came on board as the IT person, bookkeeper, office manager, and marketing manager.
Duncan's dedication and leadership spanned an impressive 40 years until his untimely and swift battle with thyroid cancer tragically ended in October 2015. He left behind an indelible legacy, having steered the company through decades of change and growth; he was 69 years old at the time of his passing. Two weeks before he passed, he told family members, “Debbie will do a better job running Louis Page than I ever did.” And so, at his passing, I became the CEO and owner of Louis E. Page and the first female executive. I imagine Duncan smiling as I write this, as was typical for this gentleman, who was full of joy, kindness, laughter, and love.
Today, Louis E. Page, Inc. continues to thrive, building upon its rich history of innovation, dedication to customers, and the enduring spirit of its founders. The company remains steadfast in its commitment to providing high-quality products and solutions to meet the ever-evolving needs of its valued customers. We recognize how essential pivoting is to surviving and thriving.
As we look to the future, we honor the legacy of Louis E. Page, whose journey from a family farm to an enduring business empire is a lasting testament to the American spirit of entrepreneurship and resilience. I proudly proclaim our trifold mantra, “ Being over 130 years old, we are one of the oldest companies in America. We are Family-owned, and we are 100% Woman-Owned!”
