Reliability, durability,strength and safety: These four factors are what the client always receives when purchasing aluminum ladders from O’Keeffe’s.  What began as a small metal shop in San Francisco in the 1930s, became a nationwide phenomenon. In the beginning, this innovative company was known by one and all as, “O’Keeffe, the Fan Man.” They were the manufacturer of choice when it came to quality motors, fans and blowers, fabricated primarily for use in naval ships, submarines and restaurant exhaust systems. With that solid reputation in place of being the ‘best’ when it came to both products and elite customer service, O’Keeffe’s entered into the architectural building products industry soon after.
