2nd Edition Book Available

The 2nd edition of my book, first published in 2016, is now available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It includes an updated list of Century Club companies, which now total over 1,000. I have also added answers to a few more questions I have received about my research as well as some graphics sorting the company list by state, public/private, and generational ownership. I hope you enjoy the stories about these remarkable companies that have survived for over 100 years.


  1. How many companies in Michigan are 100 years old? Do you know how many of those are family owned and operated? My family's store (Whipple & Co in Moorestown, MI) is celebrating our century in August and I would like to write an article for the newspapers with some statistics if you have any... thank you!
