A brief history of our company.
1929, the year Wall Street crashed, ushering in the beginning of the great depression. An odd time to start a business, but in Louisville, Kentucky a man named Alfred Lewis Schiller decided it was a good time to open a hardware store.
From its humble beginnings as a mom and pop shop, selling hammers, nails, nuts and bolts, Al Schiller adjusted as time passed, finding new and better ways of servicing the needs of his growing cutomer base.
After World War II, there was a home building boom in in the suburbs. For Schiller, this boom created the need to service Residential Home Builders. From there Schiller climbed the path that led to servicing the needs of Louisville’s General Construction industry. As the years went buy, Schiller took on new product lines and learned the best way to partner with General Contractors on the largest construction projects in the region.
Roll forward to the 21st century. Today Schiller has grown to more than 100 employees in 5 locations, supplying construction projects in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee.
Schiller is one of the nation’s largest suppliers of commercial doors, frames and hardware, as well as building specialties. We’ve supplied so many of the regions largest and most famous construction projects that we can’t begin to list them all here. Schiller, too, has many years of experience in performing on site installation of most products that we sell.
We at Schiller are constantly challenged to find a better way of doing things, to find the better path to getting the job done right.
