About John Wright
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.
