Meet The Brassco Crew

What do a gym nut, a chef, a musician, an artist, a comic book nerd, and a cat-lover have in common? They are part of the multi-talented team here at Horton Brasses who take pleasure and pride in turning raw brass into objects of beauty.

Horton Brasses is the sum of the people that work here. We are a very fortunate company in that we combine the efforts of some wonderfully diverse individuals. Each person has their own specialty, but everyone basically does what needs to be done. With such a small crew, it is important that each of us can do many different jobs, so orders go out without delay. We are proud of our heritage and our products and think you will be too.

Orion Henderson


Orion is the 4th generation to own and run Horton Brasses, and has successfully ushered it into the 21st century. He has worked hard to modernize many aspects of the company while maintaining the integrity of the historically accurate and traditional hardware.

Outside the office, Orion has two great kids and is married to the lovely and smart Marion. He is a self-described gym nut and would prefer to be outdoors. In fact, he likes being outdoors in winter and skis in some pretty challenging locales! He has been a part of Horton Brasses for seventeen years and hopes to pass it on to one of his children someday.

Steven McGrath

Shop Foreman

Steve is the guy who, if he wasn't here, everything would come to a screeching halt. He keeps the shop up and running, including maintaining the antique equipment used to make many of our products. He is also our resident plumber, electrician, and snow removal expert. On any given day he can be found decorating our hand chased pulls, running brass ribbon through the presses, or restocking trays of hinges.

Outside of work, he is an accomplished professional musician who enjoys performing and recording original music. He and his wife, Katina, love road trips and grandparenting in their spare time.

Elizier Martinez

Production Specialist

Don't let the shiny black apron and elbow length rubber gloves scare you - it's just Elizier working his magic in the brass coloring room. Here is where raw brass goes to become just what you're looking for. Dark antique? Got it. Antique? No problem. Match this piece from your great-grandmother's aunt's bedroom set? Easy as pie! Talk about multitasking!

Elizier has to calculate the time between batches, track depth of color for finishes, and make sure the right products are in the right solution while running tumblers and buffing wheels as needed.

Outside of work he enjoys shooting hoops and going to the gym. He is the proud father of three children and shares life with Wendy, a professional cake designer.
