ABLOY USA continues to bolster its distributor network and has reached an agreement with New York City-based Standard Wholesale Hardware to sell high security padlocks and cylinders and other supplies to locksmiths. Supplying the community since 1945, Standard Wholesale Hardware services the Tri-State area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
“They do a fantastic job taking care of and working with locksmiths,” said Jerry Burhans, U.S. managing director of ABLOY USA. “It is great to have them as part of our distribution network. Standard Wholesale Hardware has well established roots after being connected to the industry for nearly 75 years. Their building on Ludlow Street has a lot of history behind it and their dedication to customers is second to none.”
“ABLOY USA is one of the leading manufacturers of high security locks in the world,” said Paul Bardach, president of Standard Wholesale Hardware. “Their products are well suited for the New York metro area. They have a unique locking system that our customers will demand and appreciate. ABLOY USA’s products have a record for long endurance and are suitable for extreme weather conditions.”
Bardach said the majority of his company’s sales are door hardware, including locks and cylinders, tools, key cutting machines and key blanks and accessories. He indicated customers will have a unique opportunity to see the entire ASSA ABLOY product line at an upcoming event.
“The ASSA ABLOY Showcase on Sept. 18 is part of an annual event we have held for the last 10 years,” Bardach said. “It will be held from 6-9 p.m. at The New York Beer Company and it’s perfect for our top clientele to see ASSA ABLOY’s line and new products. We offer exclusive sales specials for those in attendance, plus raffle and prize giveaways. Over 150 people attended the showcase last year.”
