Who We Are
At LA Darling, we are committed to the retail industry, and have been for more than 100 years. Starting as the Ideal Fixture Company with a single hat display in 1897, the company embarked a growth trajectory in 1920 under the leadership of Lewis Archer Darling, aka LA Darling. In 1962, a partnership with Sam Walton would prove serendipitous as the first Walmart store opened and quickly expanded to become the largest brick-and-mortar retailer in the world. Today, LA Darling continues to partner with Walmart, as well as with other major retailers like Best Buy and Microsoft to develop dynamic, custom solutions.
In 2020, L.A. Darling merged with Streater, a longtime leader in the design and manufacturing of retail merchandising and display systems. By coming together, the two companies were able to expand offerings, better adapt to the evolving retail environment and provide stronger value to customers.
LA Darling is owned by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway under Marmon Holdings, Inc., a global, diversified organization of manufacturing and service businesses. Marmon’s strong financial position and access to capital enables our business to grow strategically via innovation and internal investment. This partnership gives our customers the best of both worlds – the financial backing of a $10-billion company paired with the agility and high-touch service of a small business.
When you’re moving at the speed of retail, you need a partner who understands your organization, your processes and your preferences. At LA Darling we’ve built our business and our reputation on relationships. We take the time to understand you and your business so that we can respond quickly, accurately and efficiently to provide unmatched customer service.
