Founded in 1946 by the Gurzenda Family in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, Rockwood Manufacturing has been providing hardware for commercial, institutional and high-end residential buildings. Today, the Rockwood plant, located in Rockwood, PA is run by third generation craftsmen, who honor the tradition of strict attention to detail by using only the highest-grade materials.
In 2008, the Rockwood Manufacturing Company was happy to be asked to join the ASSA ABLOY family, which provided the opportunity for expanded research and development allowing us to manufacture a higher-quality product. This success assisted in the nationwide growth of Rockwood and the ASSA ABLOY family.
Rockwood’s team of craftsmen have the skill to build what you need, including door pulls (custom and standard), push/pull bars, door stops and bolts, kick plates (protection plates), specialty door trim hardware, and even a large selection of out-of-production items. If you don’t see what you need, Rockwood Manufacturing offers custom fabrication!
Products manufactured by Rockwood are trusted nationwide by builders of Detention centers, educational buildings, hotels, institutional buildings, offices, restaurants, retail, sports facilities, and residential buildings.
Rockwood Manufacturing doesn’t only stand by their product; they stand by the environment as well. In fact, Rockwood received an ISO certification for their Environmental Management System.
