LACO History

LACO Associates, a prominent firm with offices in Northern California, was founded by Ilmars Lagzdins in 1954, with an aspiration to serve the extensive Northern California region. In due course, Lagzdins joined forces with Guy Conversano, and together, they incorporated the business in 1975, deriving the company name “LACO” from the first two letters of their respective last names. Despite significant growth, LACO Associates has managed to retain the responsiveness and personal touch of a smaller firm while effectively handling complex and sophisticated projects to meet client needs.
