If you think that Horton Brasses is a start-up company, you couldn’t be more wrong. Horton has been around for many generations, and our back story is certainly an interesting one. Horton was built on core values that still stand today. From our products to our customer service, we hold up the traditions that began so many years ago.
Let’s go back a few years, specifically to the 1930s. It was at this time that Angeline Horton, great-grandmother of the current owner of Horton Brasses, was becoming quite the accomplished antique dealer. As she progressed in her trade, she soon realized that she was in need of fine hardware to compliment her handiwork. Since she was looking for high quality hardware, her husband Frank decided to use his skill set to help her out. Frank Horton was a skilled tool and die maker and quickly learned that he had a future providing antique hardware to antique dealers. This simple act of kindness from Frank to Angeline was all that it took to start Horton Brasses.
The company has been passed down through the generations and will continue to so, hopefully, for many years to come. With four generations under its belt, Horton Brasses continues to provide high-quality hardware made by the same methods that early American craftsman used. Horton’s attention to detail, quality customer services, and dedication to higher standards has made it the successful business that it is today.
