From the manufacture of the very first valve, through 1970 when the company was first sold, each valve was hand wrapped in brown mill paper and boxed in wood packing boxes for shipment. Each handmade valve was assembled and tested before ever leaving the production floor. To distinguish itself from its competitors’ the head of each valve was painted red, thus the name Red Hed Manufacturing. To this day Red Hed continues the tradition started in 1921 of manufacturing the finest brass waterworks valves and components in our industry.

Henry Lawton (owner of Lawton Manufacturing) purchased Red Hed in 1970 and it was merged with his company. He moved Red Hed from Boston to its current location in Rhode Island where the company continued to fabricate Red Hed brass waterworks valves in the same manner as its predecessors. Henry focused his efforts on the Red Hed product line and over the next few decades the company became known for its innovative designs and quality craftsmanship.

Red Hed’s reputation for the best brass valve in the industry remains intact. The spirit of past owners, engineers, and machinists who took great pride in their work, is proudly continued by our strong work ethic and integrity: “It doesn’t leave the plant until it is 100%.” Red Hed has adapted, evolved and met the challenges of the various generations. We look forward to the next 90 years being just as challenging and rewarding as the first 90 years.
