East Penn Manufacturing is deeply saddened to announce that DeLight E. Breidegam, Jr., Chairman Emeritus and Founder of East Penn Manufacturing, passed away on September 9, 2015. DeLight started East Penn with his father, DeLight Sr., in 1946. He laid the foundational groundwork that has made East Penn the company that it is today. There’s no doubt that he will be deeply missed, but his legacy continues to live on. In the areas we work, in the products we make, and the customers we serve, East Penn will continue to honor DeLight by being committed to his dream and inspired by his vision.
