Lynn Imaging has been selected as Commerce Lexington's Small Business of the Year.

At the Commerce Lexington Inc. Salute to Small Business Awards Luncheon presented by Forcht Bank, Lynn Imaging was named the 2012 Small Business of the Year. The recipient of this year’s Legacy Award, Lynn Imaging was chosen among six different category winners as the Small Business of the Year. The company will now be submitted by the Bluegrass Small Business Development Center for state and national recognition through the U.S. Small Business Administration.

For 66 years, Lynn Imaging has been able to adapt to the changing economic times and advances in technology. What was started in 1946 by husband-and-wife team, Jack and Marcella Lynn, has now expanded to other markets and has 63 employees to serve its clients. In the late 1970’s, the business was passed to son J.L. Lynn and fellow Lafayette High School classmate Mike Carter, both of whom are still involved in the daily operations of Lynn Imaging.

In most cases, the Legacy Award is presented to a multi-generational business that includes one family, but Lynn Imaging’s staff includes multi-generations across two families. Also working at the business are J.L.’s daughter, Shelby Marshall, as well as Mike’s wife, Dottie, brother, Tommy, son Justin, and daughter Amanda Schoonover.

Lynn Blue Print was founded as a blue print and engineering supply company that served the needs of builders and surveyors. In 2001, the various operations of the company – Lynn Blue Print, Lynn Copies, and Lynn Color Graphics – were united under the Lynn Imaging name. Through the years, J.L. and Mike have led Lynn Imaging through the age of technology with the vision of keeping one eye on the horizon and one eye on the work at hand. In the end, it has been Lynn Imaging’s fast, reliable, and quality service that has kept customers coming back again and again.

Luncheon emcee Stephen Hillenmeyer, president of Stephen Hillenmeyer Landscape Services, said, “This year’s group of Salute to Small Business category award winners is very deserving of the honor, and altogether they boast more than 240 years in business right here in the Bluegrass. They have all shown that they have exceptional products or services, performed at a high level, led by example, have overcome challenges and setbacks, and have been gracious in their community outreach. Congratulations to Lynn Imaging and all of our award winners.”
