HGH Hardware Supply, Inc., based in Birmingham, AL, is now a distributor of the complete line of Milesi high-performance Italian wood coatings, according to a joint announcement released by the companies on February 1. The new distribution agreement marks the first time these two companies have partnered to provide a complete line of high-performance, Italian technology, wood finishing products to professional woodworkers, cabinetmakers, and millwork producers.    

HGH Hardware Supply services customers with five company locations that cover Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, and sections of Florida and Kentucky. HGH Hardware Supply offers technical support, custom color matching, and a team of technicians to meet their customers’ finishing needs and now will offer the full line of unique Milesi products, as well.  The Milesi line includes two-component (2K) polyurethanes, polyesters, water-based interior and exterior finishes, natural look finishes, high gloss wet look finishes, UV, stains, and more.

The new partnership agreement pairs two companies that each have long traditions of providing high-quality professional, residential, and commercial wood finishing products to the wood working industry. HGH Hardware Supply has been a long-time industry-leading provider of high-quality wood coatings and other wood working products to the woodworking industry in the South. HGH Hardware Supply provides professional woodworkers with one source for all their finishing needs. Milesi has produced wood coatings since 1946 and is the leading wood coatings manufacturer in Europe with proven innovative wood finish systems sold in more than 100 countries worldwide and cutting-edge technology not commonly found in North America.

“We consider this agreement another solid step in our North American wood coatings business and another milestone in rolling out the Milesi North American National Distribution Program with highly respected and quality partners such as HGH Hardware Supply” said Jeff Takac, Milesi – managing director – North America. “It’s not often that a company with the expertise, knowledge, service, and history of HGH Hardware Supply and a company with the unique heritage, products, research, and chemistry of Milesi join forces. This relationship has the potential to help both organizations experience solid growth and to benefit our end users with cutting-edge high-performance European wood finish technologies in one of the largest wood markets in the U.S. Milesi Wood Coatings are well known world-wide and are respected in the North American market, and this partnership allows our end users in the South to have access to Milesi Wood Coatings through a highly respected experienced partner such as HGH Hardware Supply.”
