Stanley Hardware® Transition

We recently transitioned the Stanley® brand of builder’s hardware to National Hardware™, our brother brand. Under the same leadership and manufacturing, this name change will have minimal impact on the goods and services that we offer as the leader in builder’s hardware. We made this change to bring you, the customer, better products and services through higher productivity, a streamlined focus, and a one brand strategy. We thank you for being a valuable Stanley Hardware customer and appreciate your cooperation with our business during this time.

We look forward to exceeding your service needs as a National Hardware customer.
