Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (513) 733-1175 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

We at Norwood Hardware and Supply Company have been a trusted, family-owned home supplier for over 100 years. It began when the Stuhlbarg family founded Norwood Paint & Hardware in Cincinnati, Ohio to supply the construction industry. In the past century we have grown from a modest hardware store to a 58,000-square-foot facility with a full showroom, serving retail and commercial customers with an emphasis on door hardware. We supply the residential market with the finest products for kitchens, baths, and all other home areas and the commercial market with metal doors and frames, wood doors and architectural hardware. At our core we maintain family values and put our legacy to work on every home and project.


1905: The Stuhlbarg family founds Norwood Paint & Hardware in Cincinnati, Ohio. The business is a complete, full-line hardware store with an emphasis on architectural door hardware.

1954: Barry Stuhlbarg, the grandson of the original founder, starts a separate division of the company called Norwood Hardware. His vision is to create strategic alliances with lock manufacturers and service general contractors building commercial projects.

1957: Norwood Hardware hires Robert Chabot to promote the business to the architectural community. Robert eventually becomes president of the company.

1977: Robert purchases NHS from Barry Stuhlbarg. This change in ownership helps the company become the region’s first "Total Door Opening" distributor.

1980s: Robert's wife, Gloria Chabot, takes an active role in the company. Robert and Gloria's leadership keeps the company growing with the additions and expansions of decorative hardware and locksmith services.

1990: Gloria assumes all leadership responsibilities. Her steady hand and insight nurtures the many employees NHS now has, including sons Matt and Craig and daughter-in-law Kathy.

2000: As the need for electronic hardware systems grows, NHS adapts by developing new capabilities. The company starts a separate group led by CEO Kathy Chabot to develop emphasis in Access Control Solutions for higher education, industrial projects and health care projects.


Under the leadership of current CEO Kathy Chabot, Norwood Hardware and Supply proudly carries on the legacy of being a female owned and run company. Our goal is to remain relevant and support the needs of our growing customer base. We have embraced lean principles to drive efficiency and to provide high levels of customer service.
