In 1904, a European craftsman began supplying door locks for Hollywood movie sets. The company was called Weiser and the locks were custom made for each new motion picture according to the set designer's specifications. From these unlikely beginnings, Weiser Lock started manufacturing door locks for California residences. By the 1950's, their high quality products had become known and specified by builders throughout the country. In 1954 Weiser opened a factory in Burnaby, British Columbia, and before too long, Weiser became the top selling brand in Canada.
In 1967, Weiser was purchased by Norris Industries, Inc. which merged with Masco Building Products Corporation in 1985. Weiser was purchased by The Black & Decker Corporation on October 1st, 2003. Headquartered in Towson, Md., Black & Decker is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of power tools and accessories, hardware and home improvement products, and technology-based fastening systems. In 2010 Black & Decker merged with Stanley, and in 2012, Spectrum Brand's purchased the Hardware and Home Improvement Group from Stanley Black & Decker, nicely synergizing with Spectrum Brand's diverse range of quality consumer companies.
