Elderhorst Bells, Inc. began in Zoeterwoude, The Netherlands in 1893. J.A. Elderhorst began working on church bells as part of his steel fabrication and blacksmithing business. Over the years, church bell service became the majority of his work. The business became J.A. Elderhorst & Zonen (Sons) and by 1926, the company was providing complete bell ringing systems.
Following World War II, the family business became Elderhorst-Zoeterwoude in The Netherlands, and part of the family of craftsman moved to Canada and then on to the United States to begin Elderhorst Bells. The company was incorporated in 1988.
