Our Heritage

  • 1975

    ORIGINS

    Building on their family heritage in hardware and tools from Kenya, East Africa, two brothers and their nephew founded Allied Hardware in Harrow, North West London, in 1975.

    ALLIED HARDWARE

    In 1976, Allied Hardware opened its doors and started selling tools, paints, homeware, and eventually brass door and window hardware.

  • 1983

    NEW PREMISES LOCATED

    In 1983, recognising the need to expand their operations, the business moved to a larger location in central London and began specialising exclusively in brass door, window, and cabinet ironmongery.

    REBRAND

    Allied Hardware rebranded as A & H Brass and opened a new showroom on Edgware Road in central London, where the business continues to be operated by the original founders to this day.

    STOCKHOLDING

    A & H Brass stock lines expanded significantly, offering products in additional finishes like polished chrome and satin chrome, necessitating more space to accommodate the inventory.
