Hardware Holdings, LLC Becomes World And Main, LLC
Hardware Holdings, LLC announced early last month it is changing its corporate name to World and Main, LLC.
Hardware Holdings was created in 2013 through the merger of the Howard Berger Company and the assets of Handy Hardware. Over the past 24 months, the company has made a series of strategic acquisitions including Jones Stephens Corp., The Faucet Queens, Inc. and WordLock Inc.
With five North American distribution centers and a presence in China, World and Main brings together product development, merchandising and distribution solutions to serve small- to medium-sized retailers and distributors. Through its retail distribution group, World and Main serves the needs of local and regional retailers, while the company’s wholesale distribution group services commercial and industrial distributors.
Handy Hardware, HBC Home & Hardware Products, and Jones Stephens will continue to operate under their respective names, leveraging their unique brand equities. Each will be referred to as “a World and Main company.”
