What do you like about doing business in Ohio?
Being in the heart of Central Ohio, American Whistle is part of a thriving community. We take pride in the fact that we contribute to that community by manufacturing products that keeps both public servants and private citizens safe. Ohio has many attractions that draw visitors to the area and American Whistle is proof that not only are things still being made in the USA, but that it's happening right here in the Buckeye State.

Description of business:
Founded in 1956 as Colsoff Manufacturing, the company changed ownership in 1988 and became known as American Whistle Corporation. Still housed in our original north Columbus location, we are proud to be the only manufacturer of metal whistles in the USA!

Here at the factory, our staff of ten Ohioans manufactures approximately 5000 whistles a day. Made from solid brass, our whistles have a sharp, shrill tone and are very durable. They are a reliable safety tool, being used and distributed to communities by police officers. Our whistles are also used in many sports by coaches and referees. We even make 24K gold-plated award whistles that the NFL presents to Super Bowl officials every year!

American Whistle also offers group tours of the factory. Every year thousands of guests visit our facility to learn about who uses whistles and get a sneak peek of how they are made. As guests are guided through the factory, they see how we've combined machinery that dates back to the founding of the company with state of the art technology to help improve our production. And of course, you can't visit a whistle factory without getting a whistle at the end of the tour!
