Anaheim, Calif.-based Leonard’s Services recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. A recent anniversary picnic gathered employees and customers from all eight Leonard’s design centers around Southern California.

Annette Callari, Leonard’s sales and marketing specialist said that Leonard’s has survived in this current economy partly by becoming “a chameleon business--adapting to changes in the marketplace, adding product divisions at strategic times, and expanding our customer base beyond new home construction.”

Leonard Nagel began Leonard’s Services in 1960 as a small, single-truck installation company in Anaheim. Since then, the company has grown to eight locations from Bakersfield to San Diego, with divisions including Commercial Projects, Multi-Family Projects, Interior Renovation, REO Services, Restoration & Maintenance, and Design Services for new home builders and homebuyers.
