Merchant 1 Manufacturing's Start

In 2011, CB Lawrence purchased Merchant 1 Manufacturing LLC and began manufacturing paint booths in Greensboro, NC. After a few years he decided he wanted to move operations to his hometown and support the local community
while serving customers across the U.S. In 2015, he had the opportunity of purchasing a larger warehouse with his wife, Mary Lawrence, in Reidsville,
NC. This was his dream, and he was living it.

A New Chapter

One short year later, we tragically lost CB due to an unfortunate accident. This was a great and heavy loss for our family, the business and for our community. Jeff Yeatts, CB’s brother, purchased M1M with the focus of keeping CB’s dream alive, continuing the vision of producing quality paint booths built in the USA, as the owner and operator of Merchant 1 Manufacturing.
