Donalsonville’s Lewis M. Carter Manufacturing was honored last week with the announcement that the company had been selected as a 2022 recipient of the Top Tiger Award. Awarded annually by Auburn University and the Harbert College of Business, the award recognizes businesses for exceptional growth, revenue and entrepreneurial spirit. In its eighth year, the “Top Tiger” honorees are among the fastest growing companies founded, owned or led by Auburn University alumni.
The recipients, divided into large, medium and small size company categories, were each selected based on their compounded annual growth rates as measured over a three year period. The rankings were according to the firm’s total revenue and for its operations in a manner consistent with the Auburn Creed.
Lewis M. Carter Manufacturing (LMC), with revenues over $30,000,000, was selected in the large company category.
Lewis Carter, Jr., LMC Chairman commented, “While I am the Auburn University alumnus, the LMC success story is truly a team effort. Running a complex, multinational company with world-wide sales and operations is truly a team effort. The Carter family is now in its fourth generation, having been formed in Donalsonville in 1941. Over the years we have been fortunate to work with so many talented and motivated associates. Chances are pretty good that when a shopper selects a peanut, tree nut, bean, pea or rice product, that raw product has been processed by machinery built here in Southwest Georgia.”
