Family-owned Livers Bronze Co., based in Kansas City, is celebrating  75 years as a designer and manufacturer of commercial hand railing systems.

Founded by the Livers brothers, Dick, Harold and John in 1946, the company began as a provider of bronze grave markers to local cemeteries, eventually branching into signage, hand railings and elevator cab interiors.

Now under the leadership of the third generation of Livers, the company focuses on sound engineering and manufacturing principles in hand railing product design. Livers Bronze is one of the few companies in the country to fabricate hand railings from the initial design to engineering and final installation, according to a press release.

“It’s amazing to think how much our business has evolved over these past 75 years,” said Charlie Livers, president. “From iconic lighting fixtures to state-of-the-art hand railing systems, we have accomplished so much. And it’s extremely rewarding to say that all of our products are manufactured right here in Kansas City.”

Located in the Blue River Business Park bordering Swope Park, Livers Bronze operates inside a 127,000 square-foot facility specially designed for custom railing and metal fabrication.
