Born in Bendzin, Poland, after World War I, Fayerman represents the fourth generation of a family business in manufacturing of hardware and related forged items. The business was founded in the mid 1800s, and grew steadily until World War II, when the Nazis confiscated the business and family members were imprisoned. The family was able to emigrate to the United States in 1946, and established Baldwin Tool & Die. In 1956, when the business outgrew its headquarters, it moved to Reading, Pennsylvania. In 1982, the family business became part of Masco Corporation. In 2003, the company was purchased by Black and Decker. Today, Fayerman serves as chairman emeritus of Baldwin Hardware Corporation and is actively involved with the community.
