Marine Hardware

Merit Metal traces our history back to just one hundred years after the American Revolution, when we began making quality hardware for America’s merchant fleet. Since then we’ve expanded our product line to hardware for fine homes, prestigious commercial buildings, and custom designs, but Merit products continue to sail the oceans as they have since our founding in 1876.
Today, Merit hardware can be found on many ships in the U.S. Navy, a standard of excellence of which we’re especially proud as an American company. Many of those products remain unchanged since our earliest days, having stood the test of time and the rigors of the sea.
