Joel has worked for Austin Hardware and its predecessor for 48 years, and meeting new people is still one of his favorite parts of the job. He helps his customers find solutions to meet their needs, and considers same day shipping for in-stock parts and the Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) two of the best features Austin Hardware provides.
“The resources provided by Austin Hardware have driven many new innovative projects through its engineering and sales departments,” says Joel. “Its warehouses and operations department work together efficiently and strive towards 5S in all locations. Austin Hardware is committed to being the leader in the markets that it serves.”
Outside of work, Joel enjoys spending time outdoors golfing, hunting, and fishing. He and his wife are also history buffs and are planning to tour Civil War battlefields and visit the sites of their ancestors.
