Wendell August was founded in 1923, and is America's oldest and largest forge located just 60 miles outside of Pittsburgh, PA.
Wendell August began as a small forge creating one-of- a-kind fireplace andirons, candlesticks, lighting standards, door knockers, latches, railings, and grilles for windows and doors. In 1930, a commission to create decorative aluminum gates and elevator doors for the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) led to a new era of design innovation. For almost 100 years WA has been creating beautifully crafted metal heirlooms. If you are from the Pittsburgh area I believe that it is safe to say that your family more than likely owns a piece of WA metal art!
