QESC's Experience

Case Study

“It has been a pleasure to get to know and work with Lawton Standard.  Each member of the team has been professional, accommodating, and easy to work with, making this transition easier for our family and our team.

“We look forward to working with Alex, Tim, Barry, and the rest of the Lawton team throughout this process and are excited for the future of QESC as it begins this next chapter of growth.  

“My grandfather founded QESC in 1948, providing the quality castings which gave our organization its name.  When the time came for us to look to the next chapter in the history of our family business, The Lawton Standard Co. was the clear solution for advancing the foundry to the next level. Their vision of offering service to the customer by applying best practices across their platform demonstrates their continuous improvement commitment and sharing the benefits of that program with their customers.

“I believe Lawton Standard will continue to serve our customers and the entire industry in the manner my grandfather, father, and I intended.”

The Lawton Standard Co. announces the (re)launch of QESC (Quality Electric Steel Castings) as its latest growth initiative in response to constrained capacity in the domestic metal casting industry. 

The Lawton Standard Co. has recently added the facilities and team members of QESC (Houston, TX) to its growing casting business to respond to constrained industry capacity and as part of its broader expansion strategy.

The new site will operate as a sister operation to:

The addition will better position both the former Quality Electric Steel Castings location and the Lawton Standard family of companies for growth in the marketplace. Each company will access the other’s products and benefit from adopting best practices across the family.
