Design & Manufacturing:
Our products are engineered for performance and built to last. If something doesn't work, we will fix it or we won't sell it. We listen to our customers, and develop our products according to their needs and standards. We offer custom size design services for customers that need the performance of our standard product line but with custom dimensions. We can offer quick and efficient design services that result in a custom sized pan within remarkably short time frames.
Our hard coat anodizing and release coating application processes are performed in-house under the same roof, increasing efficiency and reducing transportation costs. Lloyd Industries is the only US manufacturer in the cookware industry to have developed a water-based, easy-release coating system. In-house anodizing also demonstrates a comprehensive, pro-active approach to responsible manufacturing.
