Family-owned Livers Bronze Co., a designer and manufacturer of ornamental hand railing systems, announced that Charlie Livers has been appointed president. He replaces his brother, Richard “Deuce” Livers, who has served as president since 1991 and is now retiring. Both Charlie and Deuce have worked for the Kansas City-based company for more than 40 years.
“It’s been quite a ride,” Deuce says. “So many changes that have taken place over these past 40 years – from moving our headquarters and manufacturing facilities to the significant advancements that we’ve made in technology – it’s amazing to see how much progress we’ve made.”
Two years ago, Livers Bronze marked its 70th anniversary. Today, Deuce and Charlie, along with their sister, Brett Walter, and brother, Al Livers, represent the 3rd generation of the Livers family at the helm of the business. “It’s such an exciting time for our company as we continue to grow and introduce new products,” Charlie says. “I look forward to following in my brother’s footsteps and taking our business to the next level.” Charlie also pointed out that the combined years of industry experience among the Livers Bronze employee base totals more than 1,000 years. “It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to lead such an incredibly talented group of people.”
Located in the Blue River Business Park bordering Swope Park, Livers Bronze operates inside a 120,000 square-foot facility designed for custom railing and metal fabrication. In fact, Livers Bronze still manufactures its hand railings in the U.S., from the initial design to engineering and final installation. The company takes pride in its heritage, as well as its presence in the Kansas City community. The work by Livers Bronze is displayed in a number of Kansas City locations, including Municipal Auditorium; the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art; the University of Kansas Medical Center; Children’s Mercy Hospital; Two Light Kansas City; Valencia Place; the Buck O’Neil Research and Education Center; and the corporate headquarters offices for Burns & McDonnell and Dairy Farmers of America.
“We love being a part of the vibrant Kansas City community and are grateful that we have the opportunity to showcase our products in a variety of local settings,” Charlie says.
