Into the Second Century

Weyhing Brothers Manufacturing Company has been making badges in Detroit for over 100 years, and now that century-long tradition will continue with the acquisition of the company by Smith & Warren.

The Badge Company of New Jersey is a factory-direct distributor for Smith & Warren, and so the distinctive badge styles made by Weyhing Brothers are available from the Badge Company of New Jersey.

Smith & Warren itself is no newcomer to the industry, dating back to 1925. (The Badge Company of New Jersey is the baby of the group, having been founded in 1974.)

The bulk of Weyhing Brothers’ business has been badges for Detroit and other Michigan agencies, but the company also served agencies nationwide. Those agencies are now assured of continuing availability of their unique badges. The Weyhing Brothers’ tooling and dies have been moved into Smith & Warren’s production facilities in Westchester County, New York, USA.
