About Us

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.
