History

1959

Everything started in Nelson Gall’s basement. His Equipment consisted of a hand pumped hydraulic press to laminate news clippings sandwiched between sheets of vinyl.

1962

After Nelson’s death, his wife, Martha Hartman Gall, took over the business and changed the name to M.H. Gall.

1963

Martha retired from teaching, but continued working at the laminating business.

1965

Martha’s neighbors, the Imhoff’s, were often available to help out, which lead them to purchase the business on April 13.

1969

The business was then moved to a larger residence and part-time employees were hired. At this time an electric press was purchased to replace the manually operated one.

1976

Gall relocated to an oversized garage on Grant Street in Lancaster City. A lease was signed that guaranteed the building to the company for 10 years and provided the extra space needed to grow.

1980

Jay Horning, present owner, worked part-time at Gall while attending college and in December became a full-time employee. More equipment was added and soon space was scarce as the 10 year lease came to an end

1986

Business was moved to Ann Street, formally the Kaufhold Machine Shop. Gall continued to update their laminating equipment to accommodate their growing customer needs.

1989

They ventured into custom tab dividers with purchase of new equipment.

1994

When the Imhoff’s retired the business was purchased by Jay.

2000

Finally Gall Laminating transitioned to the old Raub Supply building at 315 West James Street, Suite 105 where they presently exist.

2013 – Present

The purchase of a finishing company added perfect binding, twin loop, coil binding, and saddle stitching to their growing list of capabilities. REology, a new division of Gall, opened in September.  A new creative studio and event space for people of all ages.
