Pacific, MO (June 29, 2012)—Lowell Manufacturing Company is marking its 65th anniversary as a U.S. manufacturer of AV and related products.
The company was founded in 1947 by Ben Lowell along with his wife Dorothy, the parents of current company president/CEO John Lowell and his siblings, including residential sales manager Tom Lowell, and operations manager Wilhelm Lowell. Today, the Lowell headquarters is located in Pacific, Missouri, about 40 miles southwest of St. Louis. The core team of employees continues to serve the company with dedication and enthusiasm, and many have been with Lowell for more than 20 years. Engineering, metal fabrication, welding, paint and assembly are all located at the Pacific facility. Because the company’s products fall into three major categories (rack, power and audio), its engineering department includes mechanical, audio and electrical engineers.
John Lowell reflects, “When you provide service that goes the extra step, offering things like custom design and engineering from the ground up, consultants and integrators respond to it in a very positive way. Also, the fact that we use as close to 100 percent American materials as possible in manufacturing, and comply with and support initiatives such as ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act), BAA (Buy American Act) and TAA (Trade Agreements Act) is something we are very proud of. Very few companies can make those claims. Looking ahead, we are going to continue what we’ve been doing for 65 years–to design and build products that save time and labor in the field and provide real value to customers. And to keep building them in the U.S.A. to support the American worker.”
