AKRON, OH (May 1, 2019) – Two companies with deep local roots, announced a partnership today to supply contractors and do-it-yourself customers with high-quality and cost-efficient steel rebar.
The innovative and fast-growing Akron Rebar Company, founded in 1978 and now under new ownership, teamed up with regional cornerstone Hartville Hardware & Lumber, which was founded in 1947.
“Our Made in the USA, fabricated reinforcement steel—brand-named Arc-Bar™—is synonymous with quality. It’s quickly becoming the brand that retailers are relying on to fulfill their requirements to seasoned contractors, as well as an ever more knowledgeable and demanding DIY customer,” explained Jack Widmer, Director of Sales & Marketing of Akron Rebar Company.
According to Widmer, Akron Rebar Company’s retail programs range from full merchandising set-ups, and customized display solutions, to straight forward fulfillment, all at competitive pricing and minimal lead times.
This distinctive relationship reinforces Hartville Hardware & Lumber’s solid reputation of being the one-stop shop for all building materials. “Because of our turnkey solution and Hartville Hardware’s strong legacy and customer loyalty, the partnership was a natural kick-off to our retail program,” Widmer adds.
“We are thrilled to announce that you can now find Arc-Bar™ and a full line of concrete reinforcement accessories at the legendary Hartville Hardware and Lumber.”
