Second Location on Menard St. (1923 - 1969)

In 1916, three brothers, Leopold, Victor and Carl Laciny, emigrated from Eastern Europe to the United States in search of the American dream. Together, they settled in St. Louis, MO and invested $23.00 each to establish a custom metal fabrication business they could call their own. Four generations later, the dreams and aspirations of these three men continue to flourish as Laciny Bros., Inc. surpasses it's 100th year in business.
As we advertised at our inception in 1916, Laciny Bros., Inc. specializes in custom metal work that demands creativity, precision and attention to detail. Through decades of experimentation and innovation, we are the proud beneficiaries of the knowledge and experience that can only be accumulated through years of hard work. Today, we pride ourselves on our ability to handle any job, large or small.
Although much has changed in the 100 years since our inception, Laciny Bros. has maintained a dedication to customer service and quality craftsmanship. Now proudly owned by a fourth generation of the Laciny family, we will continue to build on the reputation and principles that have kept Laciny Bros. in business for over a century.
