Our History

Baron Manufacturing Company has a long tradition of working with iron and steel, dating back to 1964. Our history, the metallurgical and mechanical expertise gained over the past 30 years and our creative sales and marketing strategy, are the key factors behind the growing success of our products. Our constant search for high-quality materials, the continuous innovation and optimization of the manufacturing processes blended with unassailed focus on product design constitute the foundation of the excellence we aim at. The technical solutions we implement ensure we provide user-friendly products. Baron Manufacturing Company has seen significant growth since the purchase by the Mc Kinney Family in the August of 2001. Since then our company has consistently contributed to the industrial development of this vertical, aimed at the complete satisfaction of our customers’ needs.


Become synonymous with connecting hardware like snaps, chains, ropes and other similar accessories. Like “Googling” it, we aspire our target market to “Baron” it while connecting two things.


We Baron Manufacturing Company aim to continuously deliver increasingly greater profitability to our customers through bringing together uncompromised quality, unsurpassable pricing and unmatched delivery speed.


Our fully automated warehouse allows us to ship most orders within 48 hours of being placed. Our sales representatives are strategically located across the US, closer to our customers. Our staff are customer-centric, and extremely knowledgeable about the products we sell.


Due to continued growth, Baron has moved to a large warehouse facility in Itasca IL. We also have overseas warehouses in Qingdao and Shanghai, China allowing for better supply chain and quality assurance.
