Hardware Manufacturing in the US

The Hardware Manufacturing industry is primarily engaged in manufacturing a variety of metal hardware, such as metal hinges, metal handles, keys, and locks, excluding coin-operated and time locks.

This will occur simultaneously with slowed growth in both the value of residential construction and new housing construction.
