About Us

The Lane Co. Legacy

For five decades, Lane Company has been Minneapolis’s premier plastic manufacturing partner.

Started by John Lane Dunbar in 1973, we are a third-generation family-owned business that is small enough to care deeply, yet big enough to support and deliver large-scale volume requirements. We focus on product fabrication that champions quality, speed, rapid prototyping and flexible production.

Compared to other common manufacturing materials, plastics offer cost-saving efficiencies that can apply to virtually every industry. We specialize in retail displays as well as components and assemblies for a wide variety of industries, including but not limited to automotive, medical, motorsport, marine, aerospace, light rail, and furniture.

With our commitment to exceptional customer care, our suite of state-of-the-art technologies, and our modern, innovative approach to manufacturing, Lane Company will bring your project to life and deliver final thermoformed products and components that refuse to compromise on quality, value or performance.

Lane Company is ISO 9001 certified.

The Lane Co. Difference

Customer Service

“Do the right thing” is a lived value at Lane Co. We go above and beyond to take care of our clients, and as a result, they trust us with their business time and time again. There is no magic secret to our success—just the same common sense approach to customer satisfaction we’ve had since 1973.


Our speed helps our clients get the products they need faster, and our reputation for quick prototyping is grounded in our comprehensive understanding of project timelines. From start to finish, we strive for efficiency across every stage of a given timeline without compromising our high standards of quality or service.


We understand that projects don’t always go according to plan. We’ll always adjust our pace to match our clients’ needs, and adapt to changes as they arise. We thrive on innovation and problem-solving, and will rise to challenges with your project’s best interests at heart.

Let’s work together.
