Our History



Ashland™ Hardware has been providing innovative, quality window and door hardware to the fenestration industry since 1932, when our sister company, Amerock® (then known as American Cabinet Hardware Corporation) negotiated their first contract with Andersen Windows.  From humble beginnings in Rockford, IL, in the now historic Ziock Building, they managed to grow the business into a company shipping more than $7 million of hardware products annually in the early 1940s.  

Amerock® acquired Ashland™ in 1996, and together the businesses have been leaders in innovation and style. Going to market under the Ashland brand for window and door hardware, we have led the way with new and exciting products in all key product categories of Hung, Casement, and Patio Door hardware.
