John Wright Company’s long history of quality cast iron products runs back over 135 years. John Wright began in 1947 and started to manufacture souvenirs and gifts on the banks of the Susquehanna River in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania. In the 1960s, through mergers and acquisitions, we acquired the complete product line of the Wrightsville Hardware Company, dating back to 1880.In the 1980s, when market trends shifted away from cast iron toys and novelties, we began to focus on reproduction and shutter hardware. We know cast iron and that will always be our focus, but we have since branched out into steel and stainless steel hardware products too. In 2017, we added custom manufacturing capabilities to serve our customers’ needs for special hardware parts in low volumes with quick lead times.Many home and building owners today choose traditional cast and forged metal hardware for their homes to increase both functionality and aesthetic appeal. While many contractors and home building professionals have experience specifying and installing shutter, window, and door hardware, others may not be as familiar with some of the different materials, designs, and things to consider before beginning a project.
John Wright Company is one of America’s oldest producers of cast-iron hardware, creating many of their products using original, 19th century patterns and production methods. Today, John Wright’s products have been fine-tuned to better suit today’s buildings, and their experts have provided installation guides, tips, and even engineering support to contractors and professionals that can save on time and money when it comes to hardware installations.Every job is unique and there is a great deal of variability when it comes to professional installations. Different regions of the US do things differently based on tradition, how windows are cut, type of material (wood, stone, brick), and even the desired open/closed position of shutters.
