In 1946 Max Wastl, a young man recently immigrated from Germany, graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Electrical Engineering. In 1947 his strong desire for personal achievement propelled him into the world of the entrepreneur and Lafayette Instrument Company was born... LIC started with one employee and was located in an 8 x 10-foot shed. Hours were long and work was hard, but rewards came too, and shortly the company expanded into a garage and then to a newly constructed brick building.
In 1965, LIC moved again to its current location. Over the next ten years this building would have to undergo three modifications to accommodate the growth in business. In 1968, LIC began to dabble in the sports editing market while sales of physiological recording instrumentation and related psychology testing apparatus continued to be major contributors to the company's growth. In 1972, LIC built and marketed "The Examiner Series" polygraph directly to polygraph examiners.
