Lawton Tubes The Copper Pride Of Coventry. In 2020 a noteworthy 102 years old, Lawton Tubes is a proudly run family-owned UK business. Founded in 1918 by A.H. Lawton, the business initially started out trading as a partnership and expert manufacturer of brass and copper tubes for various industries, including railway and shipbuilding. Two years later in 1920, the partnership was registered as a limited company.
The next big event would come about in 1937 when the company relocated from the heart of Coventry to a brand-new factory located on the outskirts of the city – a move worth mentioning as this is the same factory that to this day serves as the Lawton Tubes headquarters. Investments were made in new copper tube drawing machinery and soon, Lawton Tubes had become the number one tubing supplier to the construction industry.
Eventually, the company expanded it’s capacity and product range to include a wider set of applications such as cupro-nickel tubes for the automotive, electrical and solar heating industries as well as tubes for medical use. Their product range also covers supply refrigeration and air conditioning tubes.
The company continues its addition of high-quality products to their portfolio, thereby helping clients as well as their own business.
