Our Story

Read More

Architectural Hardware Inc. of Virginia was founded in 1971. It has grown and prospered as a supplier of doors and hardware, both manufacturer-made and custom-made, and has reliably furnished quality products throughout the state of Virginia for 45 years. Ownership has passed from Frank to son, Steven, and in 2004 was purchased by Lavonne and Gerry French. The goal of Lavonne and Gerry was to take a good company and transform it into a great company, ensuring that quality products and quality service surpassed all competition. In a matter of four years they did just that. In 2008, Lavonne and Gerry sold 90% of the shares of Architectural Hardware to Rodney and Erin Hyatt. The transfer of stock allowed Rodney and Erin to devote 100% of their efforts to Architectural Hardware so that the continued focus would be on delivering service, expertise, knowledge, convenience, reliability, and integrity. The sell also allowed Lavonne and Gerry to return to their core business, Virginia Automatic Door.

In 2012, Architectural Hardware branched out to form Architectural Hardware Inc. of South Carolina. We have full time staff located in Myrtle Beach to serve the Carolinas. Both branches share the same motto, "Big Enough to Deliver, Small Enough to Care."
