Baldt Celebrates 90th Anniversary

Baldt, Inc. of Chester, Pa., is celebrating its 90th anniversary. As a producer of product for the international market, Baldt indicates they will continue to expand their business based on what they do best: manufacturing some of the world's strongest, longest-lasting chain, anchor and related hardware products.

Baldt manufactures grades 2, 3, oil rig quality, and marine/railway chain in sizes from 3/4-inch to 4 inches.

After winning "preferred" status from the U.S. Navy and other customers, Baldt is currently manufacturing at near capacity levels. A focus on plant modernization efforts will allow Baldt to remain competitive in the marketplace, while development of ventures with foreign manufacturers will increase product supply to support its international markets.

Today, new orders such as recently awarded contracts from Ingall's Shipbuilding and Naval Construction Battalion Center emphasize their commitment to the traditional markets that have supported Baldt over the years.

As a leading manufacturer and supplier of mooring system components, Baldt continues to target the marine and offshore industries, in addition to specialized industrial applications, strengthening their representation by agents and distributors both nationally and internationally.

All of Baldt's products are certified to meet regulations of the American Bureau of Shipping, Lloyd's Registry, Det norske Veritas (DNV), the U.S. Navy and the American Petroleum Institute.
