Lenox employee retires after 48 years

June 2010 - Lenox announced the retirement of Lee "Hackman" Breton after a 48-year career with the company. Breton started working at Lenox in 1962 on the manufacturing floor, where the company credits him with manufacturing the first bimetal reciprocating saw blade by hand. In 1981, after a request from sales, Breton cut a car in half with Hackmaster Hacksaw blades. He earned the nickname Hackman and since then has traveled the world cutting more than 500 cars, including a bus at the 1999 Super Bowl XXXIIII in Miami.

"He will forever be considered a great employee as well as the best ambassador for the Lenox brand that we ever could ask for," says Rich Matthews, Lenox vice president of marketing and new business.
