Verdin designs and builds structures to enhance communities around the world: bell and clock towers, street clocks, carillon towers, chimes, tower clocks, and monuments. Playing an important role on college campuses, public spaces, cities and towns, and commercial developments, bell and clock towers become local landmarks. The sound of ringing bells is a legacy from one generation to another, and street clocks and clock towers are important for keeping daily schedules as well as landmarks enjoyed by the community.
“BUILDINGS AND STRUCTURES ARE THE BACKBONE OF A GREAT COMMUNITY. THEY PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN A PERSON’S ATTACHMENT TO A PLACE.”
– LEONARD SANTORO, ARCHITECT, COLUMBUS, OH
The power of bells in the church community
Verdin church cast bronze bells and electronic carillon bells ring throughout the world, calling parishioners to prayer, chiming in reverence, ringing joyously to mark new beginnings, and tolling in remembrance.
Verdin church bells are cast bronze bells, each one unique and hand cast for a specific customer. Verdin casts these bronze bells in the same traditional manner as those from the 15th century — using 21st century know-how.
The next time you hear a church bell ringing out a call-to-worship or pealing from a tower, chances are it’s a Verdin bell.
Verdin designs and builds bell towers to preserve and enrich the aesthetic and acoustic qualities of our cast bronze bells. Verdin offers several standard designs, as well as the ability to create completely customized towers. Adding a bell tower is an investment in your church and community — one that will last for generations.

Add the glorious sound of bells and timeless clocks to your college campus
Clocks and carillons have been an integral part of the college campus since the first carillon in the United States was installed at Notre Dame University in the mid-1800’s. So has Verdin. The Verdin Company has furnished new carillons and clocks, and renovated existing installations for educational institutions for nearly 175 years. From tower clocks and bell carillons in iconic campus buildings, to post clocks in quads, to electronic carillons on building tops, Verdin is highly visible on college campuses.
Create an identity and focal point in your development
The Verdin Company builds and installs its products in a variety of commercial locations, from airports and hotels to shopping centers and amusement parks. Custom tower and post clocks are found in these locations, as well as tower installations with clock/bell combinations.
Verdin signature post clocks and tower clocks serve as gathering places and focal points at some of America’s finest golf courses, country clubs, and resorts. The clocks are made in America and known throughout the country for their unique design, quality, and craftsmanship. Manufactured in the U.S. at our facility in Cincinnati, Verdin post clocks are focal points and gathering places and are the only post clocks awarded a U.L. Listing as a timepiece (#863).
