Everyone has heard bells ringing at some stage in their lives, especially if they live in a religious country. Some people love to hear them, while others find them really irritating. However, what cannot be debated is the fact that bells are complex objects that need repairing every now and then. This is where we, Bronze Bell Repairers come into play.
A Look at Our History
Bronze Bell Repairers is one of the oldest bell hanging repair companies in the United States. It was founded in 1823 by Alfred Bronze, who was fascinated about hanging bells from an early age.
Alfred was originally an innkeeper, but he also worked at a local bakery and forge. It was at the forge where he learnt all about fixing and making bells. In 1823, he decided that he was going to open up his own bell repair shop and he passed all of his knowledge on to his son, Frederick.
Their bell repair shop became a hit and before long they were traveling long distances to repair bells on cathedrals.
Alfred passed away in 1876, passing on the ownership to Frederick. Eventually, Frederick, like his father did, passed his knowledge onto two of his sons, Francis and Frank, and they joined him in the family business. They carried on doing great business all over the country.
In 1981, the old workshop was reconstructed and had a new forge and other important machinery added. Frank was the main owner at the time and when he retired a few years later, Bronze Bell Repairers became a Limited Company and was taken over by another company that had been dealing in repairing bells for many years as well. As a mark of respect for the work that Alfred Bronze did, the new owners decided that they would leave the name as it is.
