A Trusted Brand for 80+ Years
You may have heard or referred to us as CA Lawton Machinery or LMG Presses in the past and now you are wondering how they are linked with Trinks Inc.? We understand this can be a bit confusing as a result of the name changes, which is why we broke it down for you below
CA Lawton Company was originally founded in 1879 and formed the Plastics Machinery Division in 1935 to meet the demands of the molding industry. This is where the ingenuity and customer commitment began.
In 2007, the CA Lawton Machinery Division was purchased by Trinks Inc., changing our name to LMG. The reason we chose LMG was to provide an easy transition for our customers and vendors that previously knew us as Lawton Machinery Group. We kept the name LMG presses for 11 years, and continued to enhance our product line by being a wide-ranging solutions provider.
