Lawson Equipment announced today that due to high demand of their cordage products, they have sold the rights of manufacture and distribution of their titanium products to Dutchware Gear, a manufacturer of hammocks and titanium hammock and tarp accessories. This means they are effectively out of the titanium business and all in on their cordage products.
Lawson previously sold an assortment of different ultralight backpacking accessories including stakes, funnels, cordage, cuben fiber tarps and materials, but has gotten traction with their new cordage products and is making these their primary focus and only offering.
Statement from Lawson of Lawson Equipment
Effective Immediately: Due to an ever increasing demand for our cordage products; Dutchware Gear, the makers of specialty titanium hammock hardware will now begin to manufacture, distribute and sell titanium tent stakes, titanium sand/snow anchors, and titanium deuce scoops of our design. Dutchware Gear has the extra production capacity, knowledge, and equipment to make high quality affordable products in the USA while keeping up with demand. So moving forward, all of our current titanium products will now be owned, manufactured, distributed, and sold under the Dutchware brand through Dutchwaregear.com. If you are a new or existing customer looking to buy titanium hard gear of our design, we ask that you now purchase these items from Dutchware and/or through their network of authorized dealers.This change will allow us in the short term, to focus 100% of our attention on making high quality cordage as the demand for our glowire, ironwire, and ultraglide products has been growing like wildfire. The extra production capacity will also let us introduce new products, enter more markets, and expand into more retail stores. So thanks for all the business, encouragement, and support over the years. We look forward to serving you in the future with our high quality innovative products.Thanks again,Lawson Kline
Statement from Dutch of Dutchware Gear
This makes me very proud to announce Dutchware will be manufacturing and selling the Lawson Titanium goods. Lawson has a great US made product line of stakes, Duece Scoops, and Snow Stakes. There are also some products yet to be announced. I have long admired the Lawson Equipment product line for his titanium and rope products. Now because of increased demand for his rope products, Dutchware will be taking over the the Titanium production. We currently carry the Titanium Hook Stake and Lawson Reflective Cord. The rollout of the rest of the products will be announced on our facebook page dutchwaregear.com and hammockforums.net as they occur.
