The name ‘Wagner’ is cast on the bottom of each piece of ware.Wagner grew into a major manufacturer of cast iron and aluminum products, selling in the US and Europe.

Wagner was active between 18, and at one time dominated the cookware market, selling in Europe and the US.

The purchasers of the company in 1952 continued the brand, and Wagner products are still manufactured today. The architect Joseph Altenbach started construction of the Wagner manufacturing complex in 1890. By 1913 Wagner was distributing its products globally.

He was a friend of the family head Mathias Wagner, and was responsible for many of the major buildings in Sidney during that period. We do not strive to manufacture hollow ware as cheaply as possible, but as good as it can be made.

The company acquired their competitor Sidney Hollow Ware from Phillip Smith in 1897. We cannot afford to put on the market ware that will not sustain our reputation.

The Wagner Manufacturing Company was a family-owned manufacturer of cast iron and aluminum products based in Sidney, Ohio, US.

It made products for domestic use such as frying pans, casseroles, kettles and baking trays, and also made metal products other than cookware.

The "Magnalite" line of cast aluminum products was introduced in the early 1930s, made from a patented aluminum alloy.
