A Legacy of Innovation

For thousands of years, people have used copper as a remedy for illness. It’s no surprise then that Dr. C. G. Hussey, a prominent physician and expert on copper and its uses, founded Hussey Copper. More than 165 years later, Dr. Hussey’s expertise as a physician and Hussey Copper’s leadership in copper manufacturing have produced MD-Cu29, an EPA-registered antimicrobial copper. Others might call it innovation, but we call it legacy.

Protecting the world’s busiest places®

No one knows copper quite like we do

Hussey Copper has been one of the country’s standard bearers in copper manufacturing since 1848. We were founded by Dr. Curtis G. Hussey, a man who started his career practicing medicine on the American frontier, and pioneered the copper industry in the United States. During the next 100 years, Hussey Copper opened the first copper rolling mill west of the Allegheny Mountains, became the world’s leading producer of copper bus bar and is now proud to introduce a full line of bacteria*-killing copper touch surfaces for the future.
