Welcome!

Mesker Side ViewI love Doors & Hardware!  After 21 years I am still intrigued by the products, the codes and the people associated with the openings industry.

One of the things I love is that no two days are ever the same! Each day presents an opportunity to learn something new.

Another thing I love is that the niche nature of our industry breeds lasting relationships. Simply because no one else truly understands what we do!

This website is a work in progress.  You will find product information, links to manufacturers, helpful tips to solve problems and more. The content is a steady accumulation of posts and articles written by myself and others in the industry.  One of my customers recently said, “not one of us knows it all, but together we do!”  I love that!

I am truly grateful for the manufacturers that I am lucky enough to represent and the customers that I am lucky enough to serve.
