The Owatonna Foundation recently received a $2000.00 donation from AmesburyTruth. As the leading provider of products in the North American window and door industry, AmesburyTruth has been setting the standard for quality and durability for over a century. Their components have been tested and specifically engineered to enhance the form and function of their customers’ doors and windows. Amesbury began as a manufacturer and supplier of door and window hardware. Through the years, its reputation for product quality and exemplary customer service helped it grow to become what it is today: North America’s leading service provider of products and solutions for the window and door industry. Truth Hardware began in 1914 as a blacksmith shop in Ellendale, Minnesota. In 1955, the company began designing and manufacturing windows and door hardware. Through relentless innovation and commitment to quality, Truth Hardware became the industry’s leading hardware manufacturer, offering well over 100 different products. Truth Hardware and Amesbury merged in 2013. By joining forces, AmesburyTruth became an industry-leading organization offering an extensive product line and considerable global resources.
