Laurence Smith first opened for business in 1939 with a business model that put emphasis on satisfying the customers every need. To this day, this model has been executed with great success.
We have made many adjustments along the way, including industry changes, architectural trends and market improbability, in an effort to provide our customer with the experience they deserve.
Dating back to 1939, Laurence Smith Distributors opened its doors in Saginaw, MI. It was only a handful of years later in the mid-1940s the business was relocated to Bay City, where our corporate office and distribution center still operate today. In 1976 Laurence Smith Distributors partnered with Marvin Windows & Doors becoming the first Marvin Distributor in the State. Evident by the relationship we have with Marvin today this decision has proven to be a good one. Though our business had always been open to the public, many thought we were only a wholesale distributor. It was in 2006 when we rebranded ourselves by fine-tuning our name known today as Laurence Smith Window & Door. Most recently, in 2009, we expanded our offering with the opening of the Marvin Design Gallery in Bloomfield Hills.
When you enter one of our two Michigan showrooms in Bay City or Bloomfield Hills you will be greeted by one of our window and door professionals. With years of experience behind them, they will give you personalized attention, the kind you deserve. We do business the old-fashioned way, giving the customer one-on-one attention and taking the time they need. Our team will work to find the best resolution to your specific need, never diverting to high-pressure sales tactics. We’re working with you.
