Jim Connors joined Norlin Corp. originally as the head of the Lowery Organ factories. With his strong background in manufacturing and process control, Jim was able to keep up with the 25% growth the company was experiencing each year. Under Jim’s watch, the company created a new Lowery factory in Romeoville, Illinois in 1977. It was a “state of the art” facility for producing electronic organs and was one of the largest factories of its kind in the world. Among the many products Jim oversaw was the innovative MX1 in 1979.
