Investment Group Poised to Make a Difference in Manufacturing

What happens when one of this countries original manufacturing families, dating back to the 1800’s, teams up with one of the premier, multi-generational, and manufacturing focused investment families.

You get – The Lawson Corporation

It didn’t take long for Bob & Blake Lawson, along with Mark Mohr & Cassandra Mares to become both partners and friends with a common focal point of building an industrial conglomerate this industry has never seen before.

Other than the obvious, which is building a monetarily successful company, The Lawson Corporation is committed to making a positive impact on re-employing America.

The plan is to create two primary separate divisions:

·         Manufacturing

·         Staffing / Recruiting

Each division will be run as an autonomous group, however they will be linked to provide a constant pool of talented and skilled employees to the job demands created through expansion of the manufacturing facilities.

The firm's acquisition and merger direction is rather unique and will center on manufacturing companies that are:

·         Privately held(preferably multi-generational)

·         Profitable for the past 5 yrs.

·         Annual sales between $3M & $100M

·         Aerospace, Defense, Specialty Automotive, Medical products.

·         EBITDA 10% or greater.

In addition to the Manufacturing and Staffing divisions Lawson Corp. will immediately focus their attentions on the current Technical Universities and Training Centers.

The Work Force division will focus on either acquiring, or partnering with, industrial trade schools throughout the US, which will ultimately complete the full circle of making The Lawson Corp. a leader in “On Site” industrial technical training.
