Who we are
LAWSON FUSES plays a leading role in formulating fuse standards and specifications through its membership of the relevant committees of BSI, IEC, CENELEC, and other standards organisations. The company has sponsored and participated in many research and development programmes.
LAWSON FUSES was originally founded in 1938 specialising in the design, development and manufacture of HRC low voltage fuses. Having been an independent business for over 70 years, LAWSON FUSES was acquired by Lucy Group in 2018. The acquisition was part of Lucy Group’s strategy of acquiring businesses in complementary industries to deliver long-term sustainable growth. Lucy Group shares Lawson’s values of quality, customer service and engineering excellence.
The company moved to purpose built premises at its present location in 1960 and has subsequently expanded on both the original and adjacent sites. The present day modern facility comprises some 40,000 square feet of accommodation for manufacturing, research & development and customer service support.
For over 40 years LAWSON FUSES have been exporting Low Voltage HRC Fuse-Links to over 50 countries including; Hong Kong, South Korea, Australia, The Middle East and Africa giving the brand a truly International presence whilst still maintaining its British heritage.
In 2020, LAWSON FUSES moved its subsidiary in India from New Delhi to a brand new, modern manufacturing facility near Vadodara, close to Lucy Group’s other manufacturing facilities.
