Who We Are

Access Hardware was first established by Maurice and Penny Lowndes in 1975 as Selected Lock & Hardware Pty Ltd. Starting with one branch in North Melbourne and 4 employees, the company has continued to prosper and now employs over 250 staff nationally, operating branches in most capital cities around Australia.

The business is still owned and managed by the Lowndes family. In addition to stable ownership and direction, other key factors in the continued success and growth of the business has been a focus on the value of staff, development of key relationships with both customers and suppliers and the strategic acquisition of specific businesses that have expanded our ability to supply product and service solutions around the country.

Four business units make up the Group and they operate in different areas of the construction industry. Access Hardware is much more than just door hardware or locks, and we offer a comprehensive range of pre-sales and after-sales services to all customers.

We invite you to give us a go. Regardless of the industry sector you work in, the size of your project, the level of service and advice you need, or where you operate, we can offer a product or service solution. Speak to us or visit us online or in-branch today.
