Lawton Tubes

The UK's leading copper specialists with global reach.

Copper tube, fittings and accessories

Lawton Tubes celebrated 100 years in 2018. Starting out as a small engineering company in the heart of Coventry City UK, we have since positioned ourselves as a household brand.

Through a vast network of national and independent merchants we sell plumbing and air-conditioning tube, as well as being the largest UK medical gas copper tube distributor.

Within the last decade our expansion in overseas interest now sees our brand in over 35 countries within 4 markets: plumbing, air-conditioning, medical and industrial. This has led to us gaining the highest accolade: The Queen’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade 2019.

We continue to:

  • Evolve our portfolio of products
  • Diversify into new international markets
  • Explore opportunities within existing accounts and suppliers
  • Market and promote the use of copper

Congratulations Robert and to the rest of your family and team. A fabulous and well deserved achievement, not only keeping a 100 year old UK manufacturing business growing and successful in a massively competitive international arena, but also now getting global recognition for the Lawton brand. Onwards and upwards.
