Company History

Lewco Specialty Products, Inc. began in 1985 by Lewis Dill in his suburban Baton Rouge, Louisiana townhouse. Since then, Lewco has grown from a one person sales company to a 175,000 square foot manufacturing plant and global sales office.

In 1996, Lewco installed a state-of-the-art, high-temperature, non-woven felting process to produce a variety of different mat insulation products that are both asbestos-free and 100% free of respirable fibers.

Lewco specializes in asbestos-free textiles that pass heat and chemical attack requirements. Lewco products are capable of withstanding temperatures from minus 250° to 3000° Fahrenheit.

Lewco now markets and sells its products globally. Lewco customers can be found in all 50 of the United States, as well as Mexico, Canada, Asia, Europe and Central and South America.

The development of high temperature textiles has come a long way in the past 21 years, and Lewco has been on the cutting edge. Today and in the future, industry will demand improved textile stability and durability throughout the elevated temperature ranges. Lewco’s goal, of course, is to be prepared to meet and exceed those industry needs.
