Hafele Now a Distributor for Grass

Archdale, NC, February 19, 2013

Häfele America Co. is pleased to announce its new distribution partnership with Grass America, a quality manufacturer of functional hardware and accessories for the woodworking industries. In February, Häfele America began distributing the Tiomos and TEC Soft-close hinge series and the Dynapro undermount slide series.

“By adding these products to our portfolio, Häfele is bringing new and innovative hardware to our customers,” said Karen Armour, product marketing manager for Häfele. “These products represent high-quality European engineering and newer technologies that further advance this market.”

Häfele will distribute the following systems from Grass:

• Tiomos Hinge System – A completely new hinge concept with an adjustable Soft-close mechanism that is fully integrated and concealed in the hinge arm. Tiomos offers the ideal solution to the ever increasing requirements of today’s manufacturers.

• Dynapro Slide System – The new generation of undermount slides for wood drawers that combines intelligent features such as a synchronization mechanism plus superb gliding action for today’s modern cabinetry.

• TEC Soft-Close Hinge System – Made in the USA, the TEC Soft-close system offers quiet and effortless closing action for face frame cabinetry. In this system, the soft-closing action is built into the hinge cup so no additional installation of the Soft-close is required.

“Häfele America Co. is very excited to strengthen our relationship and portfolio by forming this partnership with Grass America,” said Paul K. Smith, president of Häfele America Co. “Häfele subsidiaries around the globe have been successfully working with Grass worldwide for years to promote functional hardware and provide high-quality products.”

“Grass America is looking forward to the possibilities this partnership can bring to both companies,” said Matthias Bulla, vice president of sales and marketing for Grass America. “It gives us the opportunity to offer the best products to an extended customer base and to build on our future as market leaders.”
