Dan Hardin, WBH Group business partner said, “WBH Group has been incredibly fortunate to have had such long term relationships with our current suppliers (most of which are the #1 brand in their category), as well as our valued customers. From a personal perspective, I couldn’t be more proud, to be given an opportunity to represent THE leader in the stair parts category, it is truly humbling. This new partnership with L.J. Smith is something that all of us at WBH Group are looking forward to for many years to come.”
“WBH Group has represented our Universal Stair Parts brand for many years and we could not be more pleased with their choice to take on L.J. Smith Stair Systems. Their unique blend of industry knowledge and application expertise is rare so our customers will benefit immensely”, said Craig Kurtz, L.J. Smith, Inc.
