Main Hardware was established in 1988 and was originally situated in Main Street in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 1992, a new partner was bought in. The business operated in Main Street for ten years until 1998 when Main Hardware was moved to its current location, Heidelberg road in City & Suburban.

This offered us a larger, more beneficial property that allowed us to carry a larger range of stock and a greater level of space which allowed us to include things such as a repairs workshop, which makes our service to customers that much more dynamic. The property also offers better highway access and greater opportunities such as stock control and increased sales. This allows us to take advantage of a wider range of suppliers and also gives us a wider customer base. In 2006, there was again a change in the directorship which has remained the same until today.

Throughout our history and with the help of our directors, Main Hardware has grown and developed into a one stop shop for all hardware needs with our specific advantage being in the supply of a wide range of industrial hardware supplies.

Main Hardware currently employs 35 staff members and offers a large delivery fleet that is able to meet any and all challenges.
