They say great customer support is the foundation of every company; but for us it’s more than that. Working with you every step of the way is what gets us out of bed in the morning.

In the beginning

In 2001, during the construction boom, a niche in the market was recognised by keen Entrepreneurs and Handles Inc. was born. We wanted to change the perception of how big a difference a seemingly small detail, like a door handle can make and offer the best service and product in the market.

From these early beginnings with the original Strand Street store, today we have 5 branches with our flagship store and showroom in Kramerville, Sandton. Future plans to expand into all major cities is on the cards.

Our range and depth is well over 10 000 inventory items with a selection to suit every design and budget. We are the choice supplier and retailer to everyone from the DIY handyman to the top architects, builders and designers in South Africa.

Our offering ranges from handles to door controls and mechanisms, specialised window fittings, custom-made and bespoke ironmongery, bathroom fittings and a host of accessories that serve the industry. 

Partnering with OLIVARI

The Italian  manufacturer OLIVARI approached us to distribute their products in South Africa. They have been crafting handles since 1911 and are the market leaders, globally. This exclusive partnership between Olivari and Handles Inc changed the playing field as their handles were welcomed by Architects, Specifiers, Builders, Interiors and Consumers alike. It opened up opportunities and changed the landscape of handles in South Africa. We are able to offer our clients the widest selection including OlivariMandelliFormaniOro & OroBesanaJUSTOR , SIPAM , FRITS JURGENS , OTLV,  Rocky Mountain Hardware and more. Our appetite to find exceptional local and global products and brands is ongoing.

This cycle of identifying, sourcing, securing, importing and presenting our clients the widest selection is now part of our blueprint as we strive to continually remain ahead in our industry in terms of local trends, functionality and top quality design.

What drives us

What really drives us is our ability to give great service to clients with whom we have built relationships with during the past 17 years of trading.

Over the years our experience of the market has enabled us to grow and to gain the trust of our clients. Our stores are geared to the requirements of each area in which we are located best suited to the consumer.  For us, our biggest achievement is found in each and every one of our satisfied customers; knowing that they have received spot-on service and advice together with a top quality product
