(Denver, Colorado, April 27, 2018) –The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District has awarded Goldberg Brothers, Inc. a Gold Award certificate for 100% compliance to wastewater pretreatment requirements in 2017, in a ceremony held on April 25, 2018 at the district’s administrative offices.

Goldberg Brothers was one of seventeen industrial companies in the metropolitan Denver area to be honored at the annual event for their demonstrated commitment to environmental excellence.

Goldberg Brothers maintenance manager John Ward, who accepted the award, said the company will continue to work toward 100% compliance in its new reclamation district now that the company has relocated outside of MWRD boundaries. All water used in the company’s manufacturing processes goes through a multi-stage filtration system to remove metal particles and to adjust the pH balance before being discharged into the municipal drainage system.

“It is just good business to do our best to comply with environmental regulations,” said company president John Golesh. “We try to go beyond the minimum requirements, though. We use recycled steel in most of our barn door hardware components and other products. We have also equipped our new building with LED lighting, motion-sensing switches, and a new, energy-efficient powdercoating system.” The company also uses water-soluble lubricants in its stamping processes, recycles scrap metal, and has eliminated the use of solvent-based paints.

The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District has presented fifteen Gold Awards to Goldberg Brothers since 1992. District officials also presented a Platinum Award to the company in 2003, for five consecutive years of 100% compliance.

Goldberg Brothers, Inc. Completes Move to New Headquarters in Jefferson County, CO

(January 25, 2018, Denver, Colorado) — Barn door hardware manufacturer Goldberg Brothers, Inc., one of the oldest continuously operating companies in Denver, Colorado, has moved into its recently purchased new headquarters in the Ken-Caryl Ranch Business Center, about 25 miles southwest of its longtime home in the Stapleton neighborhood.

“We are thrilled to have a building that we own and can grow in,” said president John Golesh. “This a great opportunity for us to set the course for our company’s future while remaining in the Denver area where our business began.”

Prior to the move, Goldberg Brothers also ran an auxiliary facility in Golden, Colorado. Now all company operations are located under one roof.

Manufacturing equipment at the new factory includes a custom-made powder coating line from Midwest Finishing Systems. Construction began last summer in Indiana on the large semi-automated system used to wash and paint steel components of Goldberg Brothers’ award-winning barn door hardware. The equipment took nearly a month to transport and assemble in the new building. Golesh said he anticipates a 30% boost in efficiency with the new powder coating system and a 15% reduction in energy consumption compared to the older equipment used at the previous factory.

The 95,520 sq ft facility at 10488 W. Centennial Road provides the company with an additional 15,000 sq ft of factory floor space. A large portion of the office space in the building will be leased to other small businesses.

Established in Denver, Colorado in 1897 as a family-owned tinsmith shop, Goldberg Brothers has been known for such diverse products as camping stoves, fishing reels, motion picture film reels and other specialty hardware for the movie theater industry.  The company has about 20 full- and part-time employees. Currently, its primary product line is steel barn door hardware for interior sliding doors. Additional information and product photos are available at
