RMG joins the Lawton family

The Lawton Standard Co. has recently combined with Renaissance Manufacturing Group (RMG) and its 160 team members as part of its expansion strategy. RMG has locations in Anniston, Ala., Grafton, Wis., and Menomonee Falls, Wis. The ductile iron foundry is at the Anniston location. Grafton is home to the machine shop. The sales office is in Menomonee Falls. 

Alex Lawton, CEO of Lawton Standard, says, “What started as two long-standing, independent, foundry-based companies in 2019 is evolving into a multi-location, multi-faceted supplier with the best cultural and process characteristics. With the addition of RMG and the shared long-term vision of the two formerly separate companies, our services offering is making a major leap forward. We’re eager to continue working on raising the standard for casting-related solutions. There is much to do to realize our goals, but as always, we aim to be both a trusted source and resource providing value to those who buy from, work for, and sell to us.”

Phil Knoebel, formerly President of the standalone RMG, will join Lawton’s leadership team and head the RMG-Lawton Standard Sales & Services (RMG) segment. Knoebel says, “It has been a pleasure to get to know and work with Lawton Standard. Each team member has been professional, accommodating, and easy to work with, which should make the transition smooth. We are excited for the future of the now combined Lawton and RMG as we further our goal to be able to say yes to all our customers’ needs.”
