We are not just Smart in Doors

Carl F Groupco Limited was formed in August 2010 – the result of the merger of two long-established hardware distributors who have collectively served the window and door hardware market in the UK for over 70 years. The company’s main objective is to provide the industry with a wide range of high quality window and door hardware components.

The company also operates Carl F direct, a direct mail and e-commerce business which supplies trade tools to the window and door industry.
