Hardware Express is positioned as the fill-in supplier in a $300 billion industry that includes hardware retailers, home centers, and building supply and mobile home retailers. Our value proposition focuses on “just in time” inventory and daily delivery on high-velocity items, while differentiating ourselves from other national hardware distributors through competitive pricing without membership, break pack, or miscellaneous fees. We also provide a substantial private label product offering, allowing for enhanced margins for retailers.

Special Note: Barnett, Hardware Express, Supply Works, and Wilmar are one entity, each offering different products. Please only apply for one of these four accounts.
