Years ago LORTONE began as a small company that hand-built durable rock tumblers to satisfy the demands of the growing lapidary field. Now in its second generation of family ownership, LORTONE has always built products with one goal in mind: To deliver quality machines and honest value. Well-crafted machines, and those who make them, are our livelihood.
Our equipment is made in the Northwest with dedicated, local workers who live in our communities. As LORTONE customers already know, the benefits to manufacturing goods in the United States are extensive. Greater quality control, manufacturing flexibility, and true cost savings are powerful factors in today’s marketplace. Our in-house laser and CNC production capability allows us to design and fabricate machines based on decades of experience. While others may ship their manufacturing jobs offshore to increase their profits, we have been continuously producing lapidary machines in America since 1978. LORTONE is proud to continue the tradition of providing employment to talented and dedicated craftspeople in the Seattle area.
