Thompson Ski factory

Postby LancerBoy » Wed Dec 22, 2010 6:53 am

Picture by Paul Ihde of the Thompson Skis, Inc. factory at Crivitz, WI - probably late 1950s. Thompson Skis, Inc. was owned and operated by Roy H. Thompson and his brother G.Grant Thompson.

A circa 1960 newspaper article claimed they were the world's largest builder of water skis, making 80,000 pairs of skis annually.
