Our Story

Founded in 1932 in a small Chicago storefront, Gold Eagle Co. has become a leader in helping preserve and protect the things we love.  We do that by creating a workplace that puts our people first and by embracing a culture that allows us to provide premium consumer products to enhance our quality of life while preserving the environment.

That’s at the heart of the Gold Eagle Story, and we’re thrilled to be launching this blog to tell you all about it.

Where Our Story Begins

Our story begins by making Gold Eagle a great place to work.  Ensuring we have a healthy, happy and productive workforce is a responsibility we take very seriously and is the number one ingredient in our recipe for success.  At Gold Eagle, we manage our business by our core values of balance, commitment, customer focus, integrity, and quality.  Each member of the Gold Eagle team lives by and practices these values every day.  It’s common to find folks who’ve worked for Gold Eagle for 20, 30 and even 40 or more years.

With a presence in 75 countries and five continents, we are still based in Chicago and remain family owned and operated. Three generations of the Hirsch family have provided a strong core of family-centric, customer-focused values with the goal of providing high-quality products that deliver on their promise.   You’ll hear more about our products and how they protect the things we love in future articles.

We’re a purpose-driven company who is proud to be a part of the Conscious Capitalism movement.   As a conscious company, we believe that business is a force for good by positively impacting all stakeholders we touch.

While many companies within our industry have outsourced overseas, we keep our manufacturing right here in the USA. Our Chicago-based manufacturing plant is a full-service facility, featuring an on-site lab for testing and quality assurance, in-house plastic bottle molding, complete blending, labeling and packaging operations along with extensive warehousing and shipping facilities. The Gold Eagle Brands sales & marketing team is also based at the Gold Eagle World Headquarters and engages with our valued customers and consumers on a daily basis.
