Anvil Industries was a customer of Vogel Brothers Corporation in the barber and beauty field 25 years ago. The assets and name of Anvil Industries was then purchased by David and Don Vogel through a corporate buyout, the name remained the same but we re-branded as Anvil USA. Vogel Brothers, as a brand, was hidden from recognition by the structure of private label manufacturering but Anvil USA was not. It was a separate entity and was established as such. After meeting with much resistance on this bold move within Vogel Brothers existing customer base, it was necessary to divest Anvil of its Barber and Beauty sales due to the aggressive atmosphere. Anvil USA's fly tying scissors were then created and marketed to the consumer through a network of dealers and distributors. Five years later, Anvil USA's brand slowly emerged in the pet grooming field. In 2012 Vogel Brothers Corporation was sold and the Anvil USA brand was purchased along with inventory and needed machinery by Don and Barbara Vogel. The corporate name and brand is Anvil USA. We currently sell worldwide to individuals, dealers and distributors. Anvil USA is continuing the shear manufacturing tradition of which Vogel Brothers built its business upon some 325 years ago. We are passionate about the quality of Anvil USA's tools and the families they support during their lifetime of use.
We manufactured for many recognizable brands across multiple industries; Anvil Industries, Oster, Jarden Consumer Solutions, Fromm International, Morris Flamingo, Monk, Arius Eickert, Heritage Cutlery, Clauss Cutlery, KA Vogel Sons, Wolff Industries and Eclipse International. Eclipse International was owned by Don Vogel, David Vogel and the Arius Eickert family. Before the sale of Eclipse International to Jarden Consumer Solutions, it was a leading shear vendor at Sally Beauty stores worldwide. The Eclipse brand successfully filled 35 SKU's in the shear category for each Sally Beauty Store and was recognized by Sally corporate as a Top Vendor. Vogel Brothers also provided small distributors with their private label brand in the industrial, pet and beauty fields.
On December 1, 2012 Vogel Brothers Corp was dissolved and the manufacturing expertise was divided between brothers, Donald Vogel and David Vogel. Passing through consecutive generations, Vogel Brothers Corporation remained in the Vogel Family until December 2012. Beginning a New Generation but keeping the longstanding traditions and expertise in scissor manufacturing, Anvil USA, Inc was established.
