Ironmonger News

Ironmonger, the brainchild of John Hurst, was the first distributor of modern European hardware in the United States, literally introducing iconic product manufacturers like DLINE, HEWI, FSB and MODRIC.

Closing in on its 37th year, Ironmonger is pleased to recognise Liz Cherco and Deb Waller as co-owners and business partners who have been overseeing the day-to-day management of the company for the last couple of years. According to John Hurst, founder and retired president, “I cannot think of any better qualified personnel to take over the Ironmonger operations.” The pair share a combined 30 years of experience which leaves them exceptionally well positioned in this specialized market.

Now, if you’re wondering about John Hurst, Sources close to him say that he’s agreed to construct a ‘blog’ on the company’s newly rehabbed website. He’ll design the area sans walls, doors, windows and other entrapments. Thoroughly Gestalt, it will be an unconfined free space where lines and angles appear to meet unconventionally; where you’ll find a premiere 1974 Ironmonger Catalogue, shiny white pressboard jacket with jet coloured letters, strewn across a Le Corbusier Chaise lounge covered in natural hide.

So, if you’re looking for a little diversion, check out John’s blog (Coming Soon) and find out just what exactly the original ironmonger has on his mind. A word of caution, this is not a blog for the faint of heart.

Based in Chicago, Ironmonger continues to serve as the leading Source for European hardware in the USA.
