The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.
The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.
It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.
C.H. Topping has specialized in automotive braking systems since 1931. We are the “one stop brake shop” for anything brake related. We have a full machine shop, full service shop including “on the car” work, and we re-line friction surfaces in-house. We take pride in what we do and are trusted by industry professionals and various car museums. Our team can handle any brake related challenge! We fix the “tough” braking issues that other shops and local dealerships cannot handle. We also do the brakes on “daily drivers”. Whether you drive a Honda or a vintage Ferrari race car we are able to maximize your braking potential and fine tune the braking system to meet your needs. We install towing brake systems for RVs, boat trailers, and industrial machine brake systems. Customers from all over the world send us parts to be remanufactured or relined with specialty friction materials. We pride ourselves on being: “C. H. Topping, the Best in Stopping!”
