Barry Adamski - COO
President, Lean Expert

Barry Adamski

Barry Adamski was named President of The C.A. Lawton Co. in 2019.

When people said LEAN manufacturing couldn’t be done in a high-mix, low-volume firm like a foundry, Barry and the Lawton team prove it CAN be done.

Before becoming President, Barry served as COO and LEAN expert at The C.A. Lawton Co. Barry is a problem solver who ensures Lawton’s pattern, casting, and machining operations run safely, smoothly, and productively. He takes care of employees and customers, ensuring that Lawton is profitable. Employees say Barry is firm but fair and knows how to get things done yesterday.

Today, Barry focuses on promoting continuous improvement through improved process flow, safety, and quality. Barry’s belief in quality training to prepare confident and competent employees helps make Lawton remarkable.

Barry says, “At Lawton, we love helping each person grow. We challenge them to achieve their full potential so they can enjoy a better future. When you inspire them, they can achieve what others say is impossible. Our remarkable people, focused on the values of continuous improvement, innovation, and community, are enabling us to achieve remarkable results. And the best is yet to come.”
