STAMFORD - Accurate Lock & Hardware has been named U.S. Sen. Chris Murphyâ€™s Monday Manufacturer.
Founded by Ronald Salvatore in 1972, the company is third-generation family-owned and operated. In 2014, Ronaldâ€™s son, Reed - who grew up working there - was named CEO.
Accurateâ€™s products include plates, wraps, strikes, latches, deadlocks, pulls, decorative door trim and other items for homes, commercial buildings and institutional facilities.
â€śAccurate is committed to making 100 percent American-made products,â€ť said Murphy. â€śTheyâ€™ve supported countless other U.S. companies and workers in the process, and have seen their company grow because of it.â€ť
In recent years, the company has grown over 50 percent, adding nearly 25 employees, and has continued to expand its Stamford facility. It now employs 110 Connecticut workers.
â€śAt Accurate, we make American every stop of the way so that people are truly buying American. That extends all the way through our supply chain, our workforce, our service providers,â€ť Reed Salvatore said.
He added, â€śThis has been one of our key competitive advantages for the last 45 years, allowing us to be extremely flexible and giving us the ability to react immediately to the ever-changing needs of designers, architects and showrooms. We are also able to insure our products are crafted to uncompro-mising standards of quality worthy of the made in America label.â€ť
Their products are used at many landmarks including the White House, Ellis Island, federal agency buildings, the American Red Cross, Grand Central Station and state capitols.
This year, Accurate is introducing several new products, including SilentPac Solutions, the Magnetic Latch and the High Security Mortise Lock, which are designed to eliminate door disturbance and improve security.
