Wendell August Forge
Wendell August Forge is America’s oldest and largest forge, producing hand-wrought ornamental metalware and elegant giftware in aluminum and other metals since 1923. In March 2010, a devastating fire destroyed the Forge’s historical workshop, corporate offices and flagship retail store after a spark from a heating element in a spray booth ignited the area and quickly spread. A fire prevention device in the booth failed.
Even though the company was able to continue production in a temporary location, the owners were determined to rebuild. Fast forward 3 years, and the company is now operating out of their new $8 million 60,000 SF corporate headquarters, retail flagship store, manufacturing facility and distribution center. Today, Wendell August has grown to 110 employees and continues to enter into new markets.
Snyder Associated Companies has been purchasing service awards from Wendell August for the past several years. Wendell August continues to be a family owned and operated company with an emphasis on quality craftsmanship and American made products.
