Corporate Profile: Akron Hardware

July 4, 2016

Are you ready for a better wholesale experience? The hardware brands you need are at Akron Hardware, and will ship the same day you call.

We’ve carried Corbin Russwin, Sargent, Yale, Norton, and Rixson – for decades, so we know the products better than anyone. We have the lines from Allegion - Schlage, Von Duprin, LCN, Falcon, Dexter, plus quality products from Hager, dormakaba, ACSI and others. We also carry the residential lines from Schlage Residential, Yale Residential, Kwikset and Baldwin for a comprehensive selection of industry recognized brands.

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 our daily conversations, we’ve come to 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 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.

Our websites –, and our ecommerce site, AKRONLINE, are designed to make your experience with Akron Hardware even better.  We want our customers to be comfortable doing everything they would normally do over the phone – anytime, anywhere. Place orders, check their account, get tracking info, but at a time and place that works for best for you. We’ll even pay your FedEx ground freight on all orders placed online. So, go ahead and log onto when you’re out on the deck, or you can always pick up the phone and call us at 800-321-9602, Monday through Friday; 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
