Caldwell Hardware celebrates 50 years of UK manufacturing

Caldwell Hardware has been supplying quality window hardware for more than a century and 2023 marks 50 years since it expanded its manufacturing into the UK market. During this time, it introduced several industry firsts, such as the first moving coil constant force balance, the first co-located casement window operator and lock, and the first heavy-duty spiral balance.

Caldwell recently joined with Yale, realising synergies and sharing best practices, creating a wider, comprehensive hardware range from one supplier. The move allows Caldwell to retain its strong brand identity and offers customers the opportunity to benefit from the ease of now being able to deal with one single business unit.

Paul Atkinson, Managing Director at Yale, comments: “Caldwell’s integration with Yale is an exciting development for both brands. Much like Yale, Caldwell has a rich heritage, provenance, and market-leading position. This move allows Caldwell to benefit from the endorsement of our global organisation, without compromising its current brand positioning.

“2023 marks 50 years since Caldwell expanded its manufacturing into the UK and it has cemented its place as a world-leading window hardware specialist, with over 1 billion balances sold to date. It offers a great complimentary range to our existing portfolio. For example, our Vertex decorative furniture is a fresh, on-trend range that offers the ultimate solution for vertical sliding sash windows and is complimented perfectly by the unseen but essential Caldwell balances.”

Caldwell produces one of the widest ranges of spring balances currently available for sliding window systems. This expansive range caters for virtually all applications, allowing fabricators to select the best solution based on precise levels of durability, cost and ease of use.

Paul adds: “Caldwell is a fantastic fit alongside the Yale brand. Collaboration and integration between our teams will support the growth of both brands moving forward as one and enable us to offer best-in-class service to our customers.”

To mark the 50th celebration a new logo will be added to Caldwell Hardware’s website, literature, manuals and labels, with further developments to follow.
