Excellence in Steel Fabrication

In 1974, brothers Jim and Dale Lawrence started Lawrence Brothers Welding out of a three-car garage located in Bluefield, Virginia.

The brothers built mine battery trays for Exide battery also located in the area. Two years later, with the addition of Gould Battery as a customer, the company purchased land and built a 10,500 square foot facility.

Forty-six years and three generations later, Lawrence Brothers, Inc. now occupies an 80,000+ sq. ft facility with 60 employees. As a heavy metal fabricator specializing in mine battery trays, the customer list includes all the major battery manufacturers such as EnerSys, Deka, and Crown.

I Could Not Have Gone To A Better Place

“I went to Lawrence Brothers to see about getting some benches made for our small town of Peterstown, WV. I could not have gone to a better place. I met one of the owners immediately and she was so friendly. She sent me straight to the designing engineer. He was great to work with and so patient with me as I made changes to my design. He sent me updates often about my project throughout the process. One of the things that impressed me most was when the first bench was completed, he was not satisfied with some quality issues in the design, so he worked once again to clean up the design and had them redo the bench. My project was always put to the highest standards. I couldn’t be happier with my benches and working with them on this project was great. Very nice people, expect great things to happen with whatever you bring to them!”
