Company Information (continued)
From being the first to forge solid brass door hardware to setting precedence for Lifetime Finishes™, Baldwin is synonymous with innovation and unsurpassed quality. For those who aspire to make the home much more than mere shelter, Baldwin is their assurance that function and elegance, as well as lasting value and luxurious style, can be found within the same fine family of products.

At Baldwin, we believe that quality should never be a compromise. From using the finest materials to crafting our hardware by hand, we are committed to creating high-quality hardware that not only looks beautiful and flawless but also endures the rigors of time.

Before the hardware takes it shape, we begin with raw bars of solid brass. Brass is a highly dependable and durable metal that naturally resists corrosion. When you hold a piece of solid brass Baldwin hardware in your hand, you will immediately notice the difference – it is heavier, stronger, and smoother than hardware that is made of aluminum or plated steel.

Better quality hardware gives you reliable performance over time so that you don’t need to periodically replace your door hardware. At the Baldwin manufacturing plant, we go through approximately 100,000 pounds of solid brass per week. Skilled artisans transform raw brass to beautiful hardware through an age old and time-tested technique known as heat forging – pounding hot metal into a specially made die. In contrast to the simpler forging technique known as casting – the pouring of liquid metal into a mould – heat forging requires more intensive work and careful attention to detail, but it produces stronger, heavier products. Baldwin artisans with years of expertise operate the complicated machineries that heat the brass to 1300 degrees and pound the metal into its final shape with 200 tons of force. Read more here.
