1893 is the year that the Keeler Brass Company® first opened its doors. Its bold
mission was to perfect the art of crafting the highest quality hardware. Its passion
was to transcend hardware, to produce art, heirlooms, and family treasures. In time,
the Keeler Brass Company became synonymous for design and finish innovation and
excellence in many industries, including furniture, kitchen cabinetry, appliance
components, marine, and automotive.
1893 was also the year that Coca-Cola®, the zipper, the photoelectric cell, the diesel
engine, and the gasoline automobile all made their debut. 1893 was a year of bold
vision and innovation.
