Family Owned and Run:
Ranger Industries was founded in 1929 and originally manufactured an exclusive line of commercial ink products for the U.S. banking industry. In 1975 Vincent A. DiLascia bought the company and it has been family owned and operated since then. Vince and his wife, Anne Generas, expanded the company by introducing new ink colors allowing them to open doors to a new market—the arts and crafts industry. In 1979, Ranger developed the first art stamp pads in unique, vibrant colors. Until 1998, Ranger’s primary business was private label products for stamp manufacturers. Ranger then began marketing product lines of its own beginning with inks and eventually moving into additional mediums. Justin Russo and Alain Avrillon, Vince’s son in laws started working at Ranger in 2001 and took over operations completely in 2006.
