Tensator Celebrates 140th Anniversary of Lawrence® Brand

Lawrence® is well known for its range of elegant post and velvet rope stanchions, that are renowned for their quality, reliability, and style. Originally created in a metalworking shop in Manhattan, the stylish and distinctive products have been guiding people through waiting spaces since 1881 – proving elegance is still essential to today’s reception environments. 

Each post model is crafted to provide attractive & versatile solutions to line management and all ropes are cut to order and assembled in Tensator’s Bay Shore, NY facilityThe product line includes a wide range of finishes and materials and is used in a multitude of settings from casinos, movie theaters, art galleries, automotive showrooms to retail stores and university campuses.  

“The Lawrence® brand has been part of the Tensator family since 2006, but our relationship spans more than 50 years. This is a product that has stood the test of time through some truly historical events and for me it is an honor to be able to preserve such a piece of history. We know when a customer buys our Lawrence® posts they are getting a quality product that has been manufactured with the experience and skill that has been refined over the past 140 years and something they can be proud of. We look forward to sharing this special anniversary year with our loyal customers all over the world.”

Alan McPherson, CEO, Tensator

We are very proud to contribute meaningful chapters to the enduring Lawrence story. We also deeply appreciate how our quality posts have been a part of not only New York’s manufacturing history but also have achieved global status through their use in countries around the world.”
