Lawson was founded in 1949 in St. Louis, Missouri. It was a big year in the history of U.S. business and industry. An American-made gold missile blew up 250 miles above White Sands, New Mexico, the highest altitude ever achieved. A record number of cars (6,000,000) rolled off the assembly lines. The Lucky Lady II completed the first non-stop flight around the world, refueling in the air four times. That same year Gene Landesman invented the first "Powered Squeegee", an automated flat-bed graphic/screen printing press to print decals and labels.
Over the years, we have grown to become the Lawson Screen & Digital Products, Inc that so many screen printers have come to know and trust. Although we have not broken any altitude records, or circumnavigated the globe; the people of Lawson have achieved significant milestones. The most important milestone achieved is that after decades of manufacturing screen printing machines, and delivering screen printing supplies, we are still here to serve out longtime customers.
Lawson Screen and Digital Products is stronger than ever. We are better able to meet your needs in today’s standards, so whether you have been a Lawson customer for years, or are looking for a partner who will be around for years to come; our history proves we are on your side.
