Better Home Products was founded in 1994 to focus on supplying our own brand of decorative and functional hardware products to the residential and multifamily new-construction industry.
Our product focus is in three primary categories: Locksets, Bathroom Accessories and Misc. Door and Closet Hardware items. Most of our products fall into the price range of entry level to midrange in cost.
We employ a total of 42 people in 2 different locations. Our primary office and Western US distribution center (37,000 square feet) is in South San Francisco, CA. All dealer shipments west of the the Rocky Mountains ship from this facility.
We have also just recently purchased a 570,000 square foot warehouse in Arlington,TX. This facility ships all dealer shipments east of the Rocky Mountains. Our same-day shipping service from both locations have enabled our dealers to provide any and all of our products to builders just-in-time, including a wide assortment of specialty finish products.
