Corporate Profile: Akron Hardware

July 1, 2014

Are you ready for a better wholesale experience? The commercial hardware brands you need are available from Akron Hardware. We’ve got the Allegion lines – Schlage, Von Duprin, LCN, Falcon and more. We’ve got the lines from ASSA ABLOY – Corbin Russwin, Sargent, Yale, Norton, and Rixson. Plus, the lines from Hager, Kaba, DORMA, ACSI and others. We ship the same day you call. We answer your questions accurately. And, you can access our system anytime, anywhere via AKRONLINE.

What’s the difference between us and other wholesalers? Let’s start with our people. What really matters when you have a question about an exit device, a trim or an electric strike, is that we can answer your questions quickly and accurately. Our staff is intensely trained – and they’ve been with Akron Hardware a long time. Call today, and get the right answer, right away. We also listen well. Through daily incoming calls, and a full-scale program making outbound calls, we know our customers – and what they need, more than ever before.

At Akron Hardware, we won’t drone on about the billions of SKU’s you’ll never need, the thousands of years of experience that don’t add up, or “almost” perfect shipping. We’ll leave all the posturing to the other guys, and keep ourselves focused on one thing: getting the quality products you need out the door quickly and correctly. We carry the best products in the industry, and they get to you fast! When a wholesaler says 99% of their orders go out the same day, that’s great – unless your order is the 1 out of every 100 that get left behind. If you didn’t need it today, you’d probably call us tomorrow. We get it – and we’ve built our process around it. Call before 5 p.m. and your orders ship today from one of our five, fully stocked distribution centers. Simple.

AKRONLINE – anytime, anywhere. When we created AKRONLINE, we wanted customers to be able to do everything they would normally do over the phone. Place orders, check their account, get tracking info, but at a time and place that works for best for them. We’re really into technology, but won’t sacrifice the basic principles that make Akron Hardware an industry leader. So, go ahead and log onto when you’re out on the deck, or pick up the phone and call us at 800-321-9602, Monday through Friday; 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

When you need hardware products in a hurry, experience for yourself how Akron Hardware makes a difference.
