However, family legacy has been a constant at the company. Frank Pembroke Huckins founded his namesake firm in 1928, and his stepson, Ken Archibald, took the reins in the early 1950s. Archibald’s daughter, and Huckins’ current owner, Cindy Purcell, was raised in Huckins heritage. She says she hung out at the yard growing up and spent her college summers working there. She and her husband, Buddy, officially entered the family business in the early 1970s.
