Adams Rite: A Century-Old Legacy Of Quality Architectural Building Hardware
Adams Rite has earned a reputation for quality in the architectural building hardware industry over the past 100 years – a reputation the CA-based company continues today with superior deadlocks, deadlatches, flushlocks, exit devices, electric strikes, door trim and other accessories. The company designs its products to complement the clean lines of modern doors while still meeting strict safety and access needs.
The door hardware manufacturer first opened its doors at the turn of the 20th Century, then known as Pacific Brass Manufacturing Co. Sold and renamed Rite Hardware Company in 1927, one of its stockholders, George R. Adams, purchased the company outright, taking his son Arthur on board in 1931 to form the Rite Hardware Manufacturing Company.
The company grew alongside the burgeoning U.S. aircraft industry, creating aircraft locks, latches and handles division to outfit planes like the Douglas DC-3. In 1999, the aviation division was sold off, and in 2006 Adams Rite Manufacturing was acquired by ASSA ABLOY Group, the Swedish international lock manufacturer and world-leader in door opening solutions. Today Adams Rite is a group brand of ASSA ABLOY, part of its Electromechanical Specialties & OEM Group based in Phoenix, AZ.
