Our 23-year legacy started 64 years ago


 Founded in 1999 by David Shapiro, LESCO Manufacturing has a 23-year track record under the name. However, the company’s roots can be traced back to 1958 to Switch King - a company founded by Natie Shapiro, David’s father. LESCO continues to grow and expand, now under the leadership of David’s son, Jonathan Shapiro, in his capacity as CEO.

With Jonathan at the helm of this ever-growing organisation, it hasn’t been an easy road for him.

Spending time in every department of the company played a pivotal role in preparing Jonathan for leadership, responsibility, and continuation of this company’s unique legacy.

“We believe that the best businesses are created as a means to fulfil a deep human need by discovering solutions to fundamental problems that seemingly did not yet exist. This is LESCO’s legacy.”
