is a family business located in the historic mill town of Collinsville Connecticut. Our company offers a wide range of unique, high quality products for personal and professional construction projects. We specialize in sliding door hardware, architectural plans to build your own barn or shed, and accessories for your building.

Our sliding door hardware connects the tradition and authenticity of Yankee craftsmanship with state of the art finishing techniques to create superior quality architectural pieces for interior and exterior use.

Our hardware has been installed in luxury hotels and commercial buildings, used on period movie sets, featured on do it yourself television shows and in books, magazine articles and has enjoyed many interesting residential applications including in a Tiny House.

We manufacture, fabricate and finish all of our hardware here in Connecticut with quality components such as solid brass spacers, stainless steel pins and fasteners, domestic steel and cast the wheels with our own custom mold.

Ours is the good stuff, the real stuff, the real good stuff! Take a moment to look through our products. We know you will agree!
