Today, Gilpin, Inc. manufactures at plants in Decatur, IN and Baltimore, OH. Its aluminum or steel products—railing, fence, gate and columns—are sold nationwide through various retailers and fence contractors.
The Gilpin brothers started the business in 1937, primarily fabricating and installing custom railing in northeast Indiana. In the early 1960’s, Gilpin sons and grandson joined the team making ornamental iron railings widely available at low cost through the innovation of packaged railings, similar to those available today.
In 2005, Gilpin, Inc. acquired some of Kingsford Products, which introduced aluminum to its product line and allowed integration of aluminum fence and rail products. This completed the Gilpin line and established it as a reputable supplier of fence and rail products.
Through the years, Gilpin, Inc. has manufactured a wide array of products, streamlining its business to focus on high grade railing and fence products.
