OUR history

In 1976, Everett Swanson and his son, Ronald—out of their modest garage—began delivering their door-hardware to business owners and contractors throughout the Los Angeles area. From these humble beginnings, S&S Hardware Co. was born. 40 years later—with the addition of a new generation of Swansons, Ron’s sons, Tyler and Troy—S&S Hardware stands as one of the premiere commercial contract suppliers on the West Coast. With the addition of new blood, came our full-service door and frame supply system, allowing S&S Hardware to offer a level of customer service that is unmatched within the door, frame and hardware industry.

WHAT WE’VE DONE

Building on our customer loyalty and reputation of unparalleled excellence and impeccable customer service, S&S Hardware has expanded its reach to include partners and clients from coast-to-coast. We’ve supplied customized door-frames and hardware to scores of high-profile commercial construction projects, ranging from entire college campus renovations to the construction of cutting-edge healthcare facilities.

WHAT WE DO NOW

Our unique supply system has allowed us to expand our reach not only geographically, but also in scope. Now, hospital maintenance staff, district locksmiths, and facilities managers for stadiums, venues, and office complexes routinely rely on S&S Hardware for quick, easy and reliable solutions to virtually any door challenge or issue imaginable. All it takes is a call or email and one of our experts will quickly quote and fix your issue. At S&S Hardware, no job is too big or too small.
