Our company, then known as Ballard Hardware, opened its doors to the public on April 5th, 1952, when Lyle Hartje and Jim Freyberg bought a building on Ballard Avenue, right down the street from our current location. They put their combined experience in pipe, valves, fittings and fasteners to work in supporting our town's thriving maritime industry.
Ballard Hardware gradually expanded over the decades to come. In 1965 the warehouse across the street, formerly a bowling alley and auto repair garage, was purchased. In 1977, we created our Pipe Yard after purchasing the property that housed Berg Fuel and ITT Harper. Our five-story brick warehouse was purchased in 1990 and extensively remodeled. Today, this highly recognizable building still houses our massive stock of unique on-hand products.
The company has grown considerably over the years and we look forward to continuing the same traditions for many years to come. We thank all of our loyal customers!
