About Us

As a locally owned and operated company since 1910, Russell Hardware Company have been introducing the local market to the finest products available from around the world. We introduced Baldwin to the local market and are the largest dealer of Baldwin products in the Midwest. When world class brands such as Waterworks, Classic Hardware, Laufen and Edgar Berebi are looking for a partner in the Michigan market they call the Russell Hardware Company first.

Our consultants have over 150 years of combined product knowledge to assist you in selecting the right products for your project. Our technical knowledge allows us to recognize the highest quality products that provide the best overall value. We represent only the brands that meet our high standard of quality and value.
  • Our History
    We trace our roots back to 1910, when "McBride House of Hardware" began in downtown Birmingham. After over 100 years in the industry we know what works and what doesn't. Since 1949, we've been displaying and selling decorative and builder's hardware. And in the mid-1990's, we expanded our offerings to include decorative plumbing. In 2012 we added interior lighting and the exclusive Michigan boutique showroom and dealer for the Waterworks brand of products, making Russell Hardware Company a one-stop showroom for your new home or renovation project.
  • Our People
    When you enter our Bloomfield Hills showroom - you'll be greeted by one of our hardware and plumbing consultants. With years of experience behind them, they'll give you personalized attention, the kind you deserve. We do business the old-fashioned way - giving the client one-on-one attention and taking the time they need. Our consultants work to find the best resolution to your specific need, never steering you towards the "special of the month." Our consultants do not work on commission and are working for you the minute you walk in the door.
  • Post-Sale Support
    And what happens after the sale? No one really talks about that. With the Internet, you're virtually on your own (no pun intended). With the Russell Hardware Company, you have three layers of service and support - our company, the manufacturer's representative, and the manufacturer. Being in business for this many years means our manufacturers are a trusted partner. They know us and they know the way we do business, so they're willing to go that extra step should something not work out to your complete satisfaction.
  • Experience
    Over the years, we've worked on a number of high-profile projects - residences of local sports and business celebrities (we wish we could name them), the Aspen Opera House, Wayne County Courthouse, Livingston County Courthouse, and the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, to name a few. We will apply the same attention to detail and care with your project as we did with those.
We invite you to come into one of our showrooms and experience the wonderful world of decorative hardware, plumbing, lighting, tile and apothecary at the Russell Hardware Company.
