The Duffy Family of Church Specialties, Inc. has three generations of experience with special products and services for the church. We started in the church bell business back in 1919 when Joe Duffy, Sr. worked with the historical Meneely Bell Company. The business was carried on by his son, Joe Duffy, Jr. and now three grandchildren, Joe III, Chris, and Jeanne are continuing on with the family tradition.
Meneely Bells were said to be the Tiffany of the trade. There was no finer bell cast than those from Meneely. Joe Duffy, Sr. started the family in the bell business when he began his career with the Meneely Bell Company in 1919.
Many people don't realize that they have one of these incredible bells in their towers. Our family has been fortunate to have many of the old Meneely shipping ledgers in our possession. We can easily look up to see if your church has a Meneely bell and if so, how old it is and its weight.
Additional information on other foundries, including Paul Revere, is available. We would be happy to research if we have any records on your bell(s). Many churches like to have this historical information to share with their congregation. Bronze bells are a valuable asset and should be used in the life of the church and be covered by insurance. We are often requested to provide replacement estimates.
Please feel free to contact us and we would be more than happy to assist you.
