Who We Are

Chicago Brass was created in 1983 to fill the booming need for specialty hardware products in the Chicago metropolitan area. Over the next 30 years, the business evolved and moved to serve the changing needs of its clients, as the marketplace grew from the city and the North Shore to a more regional operation with projects in neighboring states and beyond. In January 2011, Chicago Brass returned to its city of Chicago roots with a showroom on Kinzie Street across from the Merchandise Mart, far more convenient to the professional architecture and design community. Four years later, Chicago Brass recommitted to achieving a higher level of excellence with an exclusive focus on providing luxury door and cabinet hardware to members of the architecture, design and construction trades. Having curated ‘best in class’ products and refined a professional and highly effective set of processes Chicago Brass markets, specifies, and supplies luxury architectural hardware to architects, designers, and general contractors regardless of their geographic location.
