Chairman Steve Lee said since taking over the business in January, it is now fully re-established and is providing a range of exceptional architectural ironmongery products through a number of partners.
“This is an exciting new chapter for the business,” he said. “Over the past 140 years, Laidlaw has always enjoyed a fantastic reputation and as new owners, we are single-mindedly focusing on our core strengths to ensure that our customers continue to receive the excellent service and quality they rightly demand.”
Laidlaw has eight regional centres across the UK, with 130 highly skilled staff who are trained to offer technical expertise for even the most complex architectural ironmongery, balustrades and access control system needs across all sectors, including residential, health, education, leisure and commercial. It also works with companies to develop innovative bespoke products, priding itself on its attention to detail.
The extensive Laidlaw Architectural Ironmongery range includes handles, locks, closers and signage, as well as solutions for specialist applications such as mental health. It also provides a range of performance-critical ironmongery for door manufacturers to incorporate into fully integrated doorsets. Technical staff, most of whom are qualified to the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers Diploma standard, can provide an end-to-end service, including specification, design, manufacture, supply and project management.
Laidlaw also offers a bespoke service to specifiers, providing design, prototyping and manufacturing of architectural ironmongery products specifically to meet a client’s needs.
The outstanding Laidlaw balustrades range complies with all the necessary Building Regulations and BS/EN recommendations for structural stability, safety and accessibility.
