Zero International Celebrates Its 90th Anniversary

May 16th, 2014 by Editor

To celebrate 90 years of business, Bronx, N.Y.-based Zero International announced plans for a commemoration during the annual convention of the Door and Hardware Institute (DHI) in Dallas. Industry professionals are invited to stop by booth # 917 to help Zero celebrate.

Building over the years on its early identity as a weatherstripping manufacturer, Zero has worked in door and window gasketing since the door and hardware industry emerged as a distinct construction segment soon after the second World War. The most recent decade has witnessed an expansion in Zero’s direct product offerings and OEM collaborations, as well as both its domestic operations and international sales organization.

In addition to Zero’s primary production facility at its Bronx headquarters, where the company manufactures its specialized door and window sealing systems, Zero now manufactures vision lites and door louvers at its Advantage Lites & Louvers subsidiary in Wallace, N.C. The company also formulates and manufactures INTUMET™ intumescent materials at its Bronx plant for fire-stopping applications, as well as fire and smoke door gasketing. IND-EX, a Zero company based in Middlefield, Ohio, compounds rubbers and manufactures specialty rubber and plastic extrusions to order for many industries and applications. The company’s Las Vegas warehouse facilitates western U.S. distribution. And, in recent years, Zero has established subsidiaries in Dubai and Chile, joining other Zero companies in the United Kingdom and Japan, as well as numerous sales agencies in its international sales and supply network.
