With Los Angeles (L.A.) recognized as the third largest metropolitan economy in the world, and greater L.A. County serving as the largest manufacturing center in the U.S., the region functions as a major hub for organizations and brands devoted to American manufacturing.
For the past 18 years, the Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) has celebrated trailblazing companies in L.A. that exhibit the highest revenue growth through their annual 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies Awards. C.R. Laurence was recently honored with the award for the second year in a row.

CRL designs, engineers, and manufactures a wide range of branded architectural hardware, including commercial and residential architectural railings, hardware for "all-glass" commercial entrances, transaction hardware, and frameless shower door hardware.

"Our core elements of providing quality products and unrivaled customer service have enabled us to cultivate a loyal, rapidly growing customer base that's given CRL the ability to evolve into an industry leader," says Lloyd W. Talbert, President of C.R. Laurence. "We are honored to be recognized as one of the Los Angeles Business Journal's 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies, as this reinforces our hard work and dedication to our customers, the industry, and American manufacturing.
