About the Company
C.R. Laurence Co., Inc. (CRL) is the leading supplier to the glazing, architectural, railing, construction, industrial, and automotive industries. Offering more than 50,000 products, we serve the industry from locations throughout North America, Europe, and Australia. Customer service has guided us ever since our beginning over 50 years ago, when we started out as a distributor of glazier's hardware and industrial supplies, operating from a 5,000 square foot facility in Los Angeles, California.
Today, we are the leading supplier of products to the glass and glazing industry. We design, engineer, and manufacture a wide range of architectural hardware, including commercial and residential architectural railings, hardware for "all-glass" commercial entrances, transaction hardware, and frameless shower door hardware. Our U.S. Aluminum Division manufactures and supplies a complete range of products for commercial, institutional, retail, and government buildings. The extensive product range includes storefronts, entrance doors, windows, window walls, curtain walls, and sun control systems. We also manufacture a selection of quality windows for trucks and vans. More than one million square feet of space is dedicated to CRL's manufacturing and supply operations in Los Angeles.
