About HKG

The evolution of a century-old manufacturing company into an agile,
responsive global resource.

Our Start

Chances are, over the past century every leading furniture maker in the country has relied on hardware and equipment from HKG. And most of the top companies are still customers today; they've made HKG the furniture industry's favorite hardware resource.

Upholstered furniture people depend on HKG's broad line of hardware, button parts and covering machines. Bedding manufacturers look to HKG for tufting supplies and machines.

Our highly engineered buttons, tacking strip and diversified product line are unrivaled in the industry.

Case goods and cabinet builders rely on HKG hardware and accessories. This century-long loyalty is no accident; it's based on those “old fashioned” basics—capability, dependability, and service.

The Rite-Trak drawer guide system is the number one brand in the category and is preferred by leading furniture makers both in the US and globally.

Our Evolution

We’ve thrived over the years because we emphasize delivering quality products, exceptional service and staying with and ahead of our customers’ needs.

Our quality control systems are as sophisticated and effective as any in the industry, with statistical process control and CAD-CAM programs for product development and tooling. These are the keys to HKG’s consistent quality, piece-after-piece uniformity.

HKG prides itself on delivering more than the customer expects. More in lasting product performance, and more in service and support—globally.
