With our head manufacturing plant situated in the heart of Atlanta, every vision, blueprint, model and finished product gets a nod and approval before it can advance to the next phase. Although inspiration plays a big part in the decision making process, the manufacturing process is quite technical and leaves no room for inaccuracy. Take a look here for a quick tour of how a product is made in our production facility.
It was back in 1976 when the roots of Architectural Brass originally began to foster, and it started with a specific vision. This vision was to combine commodities of necessity with the sensibilities of design. For years, Architectural Brass designers, engineers and artisans tooled over their handcrafted pieces, blueprint drafts and models to perfect the true essence of their combined craft. With humble beginnings, this story is an American Dream attained. Today, Architectural Brass signature products can be seen in the finest resorts, hotels, casinos and public areas around the world.
Architectural Brass is a company of amazing people working in one of the most exciting industries in the world. When you consider our many accomplishments -- from designing and building the earliest products to creating and supporting today's hundreds of new products -- you might think we would be content with how far we've come. But a company of our small size and scope doesn't succeed by resting on its laurels; we are constantly re-examining our capabilities and processes to ensure that our company is as strong and vital as our heritage. In fact, our culture mirrors the heritage of craftsmanship itself, built on a foundation of innovation, aspiration and imagination.
Just as we believe in leaving a legacy of brilliant design with a purpose, we also integrate our belief of being kind to the environment. Everyday we put into practice the preservation of Mother Nature. In our production facility, it includes an internal recycling program that diverts waste by filtering the water for reuse, by using 100% recyclable materials, by recycling raw materials and reusing where possible.
At Architectural Brass, we are committed to a set of core values that not only define who we are, but also serve as guideposts to help us become the company we would like to be. We truly live these values every day.
