Hardware Manufacturer Announces Name Change

Corinne, UT — Stone River Bronze, a manufacturer of luxury bronze hardware, has changed its corporate and product brand name to “Nobilus,” the company said.

A subsidiary of HOPPE North America, Nobilus operated under the name Stone River Bronze since it was founded in 1997. The company, known for its ability to provide custom details in its hardware, manufactures a product line that includes cabinet pulls, towel bars, hinges, door handles and window locks, among other products.

According to Nobilus President and CEO Curtis Wiemann, the motivation behind the name change “is driven by a desire to expand the company’s manufacturing expertise.”

“The company plans to offer a wider palette of materials and sophisticated architectural styles for the high-end commercial and home building/remodeling market,” Wiemann said.

"The name Stone River Bronze simply became too limiting.”

The company will use the name Nobilus publicly for the first time at the Kitchen/Bath Industry Show (K/BIS) this month in Las Vegas, Wiemann said.
