In this Fireside Chat, Danny Matthews, President of J.L. Matthews speaks with Kat Clemmons Lea, Co-owner and VP of Sales at Elk River and JELCO.
The companies operated as sister companies until 2005, they were split. As of September 2020, they became sister companies again when my brother and I had the opportunity to buy Elk River back.
