About Us

Based In Dundee, Robert Lawson & Sons are an established auto electrical business who have been trading since 1985. With over 30 years’ experience within the trade our friendly and professional team specialise in vehicle conversions for all emergency services and government departments.

Company History

Started in 1985, Robert Lawson was a mobile auto electrician working out the back of his van. Attending breakdowns and repairing electrical faults on all types of vehicles and maintaining the local council’s fleet.

As business improved it was clear that a workshop was required and in 1986 Robert moved into his first premises on Fairfield Road. The steady growth of the business in the late 90’s and early 2000’s meant further moves to larger premises at Old Glamis Road and Dunsinane Avenue would follow.

In 2001 we started to do work for Scottish Ambulance Service and Scottish Fire Service then a few years later Police Scotland. As the workload increased another move to our current premises at Kilspindie Road was essential to help us grow the business further and fulfil our potential.

In todays world, Robert Lawson & Sons are a market leader in the conversion of all types of emergency service vehicles from Ambulance rapid response cars to Police cell vans.
