Director’s Speak – Caring Professionally

Hello readers and our loyal Lawrence & Mayo patrons! As one of the Directors of Lawrence & Mayo, I have had the good fortune of being part of the L&M family for several years now. But I would like to share some informal thoughts about my beloved company. Because in all these years of being a corporate professional, never before have I felt this sense of pride, ownership and belonging in any other company that I’ve served at.

At Lawrence & Mayo, we strive to excel and uphold the highest standards of excellence that our founding fathers set as benchmarks for the world of optical retail and manufacturing. In my years at Lawrence & Mayo, I have found that the very spirit of our founding fathers, their innovative streak, their quality obsession and their professionalism are all elements that are part of each & every L&M employee, or as we like to call ourselves, every member of the L&M family.

As a result, our infrastructure today is robust and well networked. We have a work force well in excess of 450 personnel, spread over all our near 30 outlets, throughout the country. L&M’s Corporate Philosophy of Quality, Value and Service guides every single member like a beacon. It is a way of life for every employee at Lawrence & Mayo. It is L&M’s commitment to follow this philosophy that has led our customers to expect nothing but perfection.

Many companies have elaborate and morally poignant charters. But I know that few live by the codes they themselves establish. At Lawrence & Mayo things are quite different. Each Lawrence & Mayo venture is undertaken with dedication and unwavering determination, be it optical or instrumentation. L&M aims at retaining and enhancing its position in the Indian market through significant quality and service leadership by continuously investing in technology and people. The vision to excel underlines each and every facet of our operations.

Quality, Service, Value – are the three cornerstones of the L&M philosophy. These form the ideological and the philosophical bedrock upon which we build our mission, vision, and businesses. Because at Lawrence & Mayo, we are acutely aware that we are serving society and we have to be the best that we can and the most responsible that we can be.

For me, it has been an honor to be associated with Lawrence & Mayo and I can say, on behalf of the entire company and all our people, that it is our singular privilege to serve you in the best way possible. So do drop in to one of our branches and experience the love and care that we put into our products and services. It’ll be the one lasting relationship of your life!

    Mr. Vivek Mendonsa has always been a visionary. He always believed in things and people and always thought very futuristic ally…Working with him has been a dull moment. Always active and charged up! He is a good friend, colleague and a better human being to be with. I wish him all the success in his life!

        A few months internship with L&M has made me understand that the company worships Quality and so do you Sir. You have got a really futuristic view and I as a person really believe in whatever you do.
        A great speech written by a great person in L&M.

    I had purchased a frame in January 2013 from your Santacruz branch and had written to you that one glass used to slip from the frame regularly despite getting it repaired in Kenya. When I visited Mumbai in December 2014 I gave it to your shop who sent it to their workshop and refitted the glass. I was told that even a new screw was fitted and the specs were properly repaired. However the same problem has recurred now.

    I use the glasses only occasionally for distance viewing only. After spending so much money I have not been able to make use of the glasses. Now I am greatly inconvenienced as I cannot use them.

    It seems that the frame itself is faulty and must be replaced by your company. It would have been better if I had bought a cheaper frame and would have saved on incidental expenses as well.
