4th Generation Family Company - Ball Chains Proudly Made in the USA

About Us

The World's #1 Ball Chain Manufacturer

Ball Chain Manufacturing Co., Inc. (Ball Chain) is the world’s largest manufacturer of ball chain and related accessories. Founded in 1938 by Frank Taubner and his son, Val, in the garage behind their home in the Bronx, Ball Chain has grown to employ more than 95 people. Under current President Bill and his brothers, Val and Jim, Ball Chain manufactures the industry’s highest quality ball chain and distributes its products globally. Our ball chain is a part of everyday life and is featured in items such as window/roller shades, light fixtures, plumbing devices, key chains and chain necklaces.



Manufactured in the United States

Still family owned and operated, Ball Chain proudly manufactures all of its ball chain in the USA. We are headquartered in Mount Vernon, New York (just north of New York City). Our 70,000 square foot production facility houses the manufacturing operation, along with offices for the entire company, including the LogoTags promotional products division and the BCM Architectural division, which distributes ShimmerScreen® decorative ball chain curtains. Our factory produces millions of feet of ball chain a week, and we are the only remaining company to manufacture ball chain in the USA.


Exclusive Supplier To The U.S. Military

Continuing a decades-long tradition, Ball Chain supplies the U.S. armed forces with ball chain for the iconic military ID dog tag necklaces worn by American soldiers. We ensure that all of our ball chain is manufactured to the highest quality standards. As a result, we have developed and maintained relationships with businesses across a wide spectrum of industries, in addition to the U.S. military.
