"I shall call them stalwarts from their love of doctrines, dogmas, and creeds, and from their inclination to subordinate policy to principle."
"Stalwarts are always impressed by ideals that are clear and simple, by principles that are bold and definite, by creeds that are rigid and exact, and by platforms that are plain and unmistakable."
-- Simon Nelson Patten - 1899 (OED)
The Stalwart Corporation is operated by founder Bruce Burton, a long time reloader, shooting enthusiast, and machinist by trade. He transfers his years of experience into the design of each product, resulting in equipment that is not only usable and practical, but also well engineered.
In the late 1970's, Bruce started Burton Associates in Pocatello, Idaho. This was the first step in what was to eventually become The Stalwart Corporation. Although still producing the wooden reloading blocks that remain the primary focus of the business, his product line has expanded over the years as new needs became apparent.
Less than a decade after Burton Associates was founded, Bruce and other shareholders incorporated the firm into The Stalwart Corporation we know today. In the mid 1990's, Bruce relocated the company to Wyoming, where he continues to manufacture reloading equipment for enthusiasts such as himself.
