Lupoli Companies exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit born from my passion to transform community’s one job at a time. Opening my first Sal’s Pizza in 1990 served as a catalyst for over two decades of business success. This formula for success wasn’t written in a book or taught in a university it was developed and nurtured by my father and mother as a child and young man. These values shape everything we think and do, from how we attain our business growth to how we serve our customers, employees and communities.
We share in the pride of what has been accomplished with our strategic partners and dedicated team members. Together we are driven by our values of authenticity, innovation, responsibility and service. We work hard to make a difference in local communities, focusing on small business initiatives and innovation, economic development, community revitalization and job creation. This website is an extension of the values that define the common philosophy shared throughout all levels of our organization.
I am proud of what has been accomplished and excited about what lies ahead.
In 2005, Yaskawa – Solectria Solar (then, Solectria Renewables) co-founders Anita Worden, James Worden, Aybike Crott and Michael Zuercher-Martinson, pioneers in power electronics, left the electric vehicle business and set out in a small, 5,000 square foot office space at Riverwalk Properties in Lawrence, to develop a grid-tied solar inverter company that is now the #1 commercial supplier to the U.S. Yaskawa – Solectria Solar manufactures all of its three-phase central inverters at the Lawrence location. It has since expanded various times and now occupies 85,000 square feet of space in the same building where they first opened.
