How We Are Different

Why 100% Made in America Makes a Difference


The Wilson Bohannan Lock company has been manufacturing padlocks for over 155 years.

Mr. Wilson Bohannan started manufacturing locks in his garage with his son, Todd, in 1860 in Brooklyn, New York. Mr. Wilson Tway, the founder’s grandson, moved the factory to Marion, Ohio in 1926 where it remains today.



Wilson Bohannan padlocks have always been made in America. We employ Americans who are among the finest workers in the world, and keep all of our revenue from the business in America. We believe this has the most benefit for our country.




Our seven-generation family business is successful because of the many fine people who work for WB. Our corporate family is proud of what we have accomplished. Our employees are industrious, reliable and committed to make the finest padlocks of any lock manufacturer.
