In 1954, Joe LaForce bought a hardware supply business in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin. Since then, we have grown to become one of the largest distributors for commercial door opening products such as hollow metal frames, wood doors, hardware, steel doors, security systems, video surveillance, and much more. We continue to be headquartered in Green Bay, with additional locations throughout the country.
