A Grand Junction company that’s developed a line of products designed to help customers get organized has announced two more distributors will offer those products.

Würth Baer Supply will carry Glideware products in the Central Plains, Midwest, upper Midwest, New England and northern Mid-Atlantic states. Hardware Distributors Ltd. will distribute Glideware in the upper Midwest and beyond.

Both distributors will carry the full line of Glideware products, including storage systems not only for kitchens, but also closets, garages and outdoor entertainment areas.

“We are continuing to strengthen our position as a leader in organization,” said Dave Hall, co-founder of Glideware along with his wife, Jenny.

“By adding strong distribution partners like Würth Baer Supply and HDL, we are determined to make Glideware synonymous with organization across North America,” Dave Hall said.

Würth Baer Supply will add Glideware products to a diverse inventory that also includes decorative hardware, fasteners and Formica laminates.

Keven Joseph, product manager with the company, said Glideware products are unique in the industry. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to offer Glideware to our customers.”

HDL is a leading wholesale distributor of cabinet and furniture hardware and related products, serving customers in all 50 states.

“Glideware creates innovative organizational products that can move the needle for our customers,” said Tom Kubat, purchasing manager for HDL. “The versatility of their product line to move outside the kitchen and into organization for the home creates a lot of opportunity.”

The Halls invented the original Glideware product as a solution to a problem: organizing pots and pans piled up inside kitchen cabinets. Their extendable rail with hooks makes it possible to hang pots and pats inside cabinets.

Glideware won one of the four top awards presented at the 2014 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas. Glideware subsequently was included among the hottest kitchen accessories and interior fittings featured in Kitchen Bath Design News and ranked among the top 100 new home products in an annual list compiled for This Old House, a popular home improvement magazine, television show and Web site.

The Halls since have refined their storage systems while also developing other products. Their Not-So-Lazy Susan rotating system features a slot from which to hang cookware as well as a shelf for pots.
