Time-Proven Industry Expert

Over 25 years after company’s creation, LTW now serves companies across the globe with patented industrial products. We’re still passionate about helping companies provide ergonomics for their employees with height adjustable workspaces. Whether that means tables, machine bases, workbenches, or operator platforms – we can help you succeed with it all.

We don’t just claim to be the best in the business. See what our customers actually say about LTW.

“Underground” Beginnings

In 1994, newlywed John Lanphear began Lanphear Tool Works in the basement of his great grandfather’s house. He purchased the antique falling-apart home when he married the love of his live, Mindy.

The basement flooded every time it rained. In standing water, John and his first employees worked. What kind of company (or marriage) would push through so much?

LTW has been out the basement and in its current Lawrence, MI, location for over 20 years. Stop by during business hours to visit our showroom and experience our industrial products for yourself! If you let us know you’ll be coming ahead of time, we’ll prepare something special for your visit.
