Our History — Three Generations of Candle Excellence
Laurence Candle Company, three generations spanning 67 years, has dedicated itself to making quality candles. Located in the old historic New England town of Millbury, Massachusetts, the Laurence family has been manufacturing church candles, that continue to satisfy many of their initial clients to this day.
In 1943 Ernest Laurence, owner of a modest grocery store, began producing devotional candles to expand his business and create a new avenue for future growth. He poured his first votive candle in the cellar of his home. The business grew and within a year, he closed the grocery store and bought a historic mill, where he devoted the next 29 years to his growing candle-making business. Today, the family owned business is run by Ernest's grandson Andrew.
