In 1864, Joseph Bradford Sargent opened the Sargent & Company hardware manufacturing plant in New Haven, Connecticut. By 1871, the company was adding extensive additions to the plant to accommodate 2,000 workmen. Following the Civil War, Sargent Co. became the largest supplier and distributor of hardware in the U.S., buying out many smaller companies. In 1884, the company began to manufacture locks.
