Rockland Mayor Deborah McNeil, acting in her capacity as regional representative to U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, presented a certificate to Lie-Nielsen Toolworks founder Thomas Lie-Nielsen May 26.
WARREN (May 27): The accomplishments of Lie-Nielsen Toolworks have been recognized by the U.S. Congress.

Rockland Mayor Deborah McNeil, acting in her capacity as regional representative to U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, presented a certificate to Lie-Nielsen Toolworks founder Thomas Lie-Nielsen May 26.

The certificate contains the statements that Snowe read into the Congressional Record on the floor of the House April 29, honoring Lie-Nielsen Toolworks. Snowe is a ranking member of the Senate Small Business Committee.

“It is the passion, drive, and innovation of entrepreneurs like Thomas Lie-Nielsen that will shape our economic future,” the certificate states.

It also included some of the history of the company, which Lie-Nielsen started in 1981 in West Rockport to fill the specialty tool niche. In 1988, the business moved to Route 1 in Warren where it has a 13,000-square-foot facility.

The company manufactures nearly 100 different woodworking tools and employs more than 60 people.

“On April 17 of this year, Maine Governor John Baldacci presented Lie-Nielsen, along with five other excellent Maine companies, with the 2009 Governor’s Award for Business Excellence,” the certificate states.

“I’m very honored,” Lie-Nielsen said. “We have a great group of employees here.”

Excellent tools, very well priced and proudly, made in USA!

Actually, I enjoy Thomas’ and Karen’s wine store and deli in Waldoboro as much as visiting LN’s shops. Maybe even more. The food is great, the selection of wines and beers is incredible and the atmosphere is relaxing:

Thomas is an interesting guy with a lot of dimensions. I enjoy it when I’m around him.

Have your say...
