Lawson Mechanical Contractors is celebrating 75 years in business, having earned great respect and success in the construction industry. Archie Lawson founded the firm in 1947 as Lawson Sheet Metal, but by the 1950s, he expanded into plumbing and piping and the business took on the name it operates under today.
President and CEO David Lawson, grandson of entrepreneur and founder Archie, says, “My grandfather, who worked in the shipyards during World War II, migrated from the Midwest to California on freight trains during the Depression and later launched his business in Sacramento. We are still here today as a privately-held family business with roots of three-quarters of a century in this community.”
With projects throughout Central and Northern California, the company provides comprehensive contracting services, specializing in HVAC and plumbing, engineering, design and service. Markets span the commercial and government sectors and include healthcare, hospitality and education.
“Performance is in the details. We do our work well and on time, with a superior product delivered to our customers: general contractors and building owners.” — David Lawson, President and CEO
“We design, build and service HVAC and plumbing systems,” Lawson says. “Our work includes new-build construction projects as well as renovations. Many older buildings are repurposed and need complete HVAC and plumbing overhauls. Our HVAC service department ensures our systems continue to perform.”
The company employs a team of 200 to 250 sheet metal workers, plumbers and pipefitters at any given time. Lawson notes that all team members put heavy emphasis on the details of every project. “Performance is in the details. We do our work well and on time, with a superior product delivered to our customers: general contractors and building owners.”
Lawson Mechanical Contractors has helped our region grow and thrive for 75 years and looks to remain a positive presence in their industry and our communities for many more. “We are poised to grow and plan to continue to offer the best service possible,” Lawson says.
