Alex Lawton is the CEO of The Lawton Standard Co. But do you know him? People who have worked with Alex have said, they appreciate that he regularly brings in fresh cheese curds and he takes the time to check in with everyone. Our new employees and interns remark that they’re touched by his genuine care for people.
Alex and his family have been manufacturing goods and providing services from the Green Bay, Wisconsin area since 1879. His uncle, E.W. Arndt began manufacturing a bran dressing machine under the name Novelty Manufacturing Co. in De Pere, Wisconsin.
During the industrial boom of the early 1880s, the Lawton’s expanded capabilities to include pattern making, an iron foundry, machining, and engineering design. This basic model of a machinery and machine component manufacturing company has been maintained ever since. While much has changed in manufacturing since our company began, family ownership and management have been a source of stability and consistent leadership.
Today, Alex Lawton is CEO of both Lawton Standard and the C.A. Lawton Co. The company is still based on values of honesty, caring about employees and customers, continual improvement of products and processes, and business success. He and his team work every day to make the customers’ experiences easier. Alex is constantly working and investing to build new capabilities to combine them with the first-rate people and assets that exist throughout our organization.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know Alex. Watch for featured posts about other members of our family.
