Product Central: Neat-Feet
Once a year, the industry packs its bags and heads to Las Vegas for the annual hardware event that tops all the rest in its scope, diversity, and sheer magnitude.
The National Hardware Show attracts a dense and diverse crowd from all over the country, which is only surpassed by the assortment of products littered across a show floor vast enough to move the needle on one’s Fitbit. It’s certainly not possible to see everything the National Hardware Show has to offer, but that’s why the show organizers are offering tailored recommendations to attendees. For an added level of optimization, here are a few highlights from HBSDealer that might be worthy of your attention.
Here is a product featured in a recent issue of HBSDealer:
Neat-Feet is the quick and easy way for your customers to clean their shoes, boots or cleats and “leave the dirt outside.” Neat-Feet makes a natural Made-in-USA addition to an impulse display featuring doormats, outdoor footwear, or in farm & ranch.

Three architectural surfaces brands gain a parent company
Three architectural surfaces brands have united under one parent company umbrella.
The new consolidated entity, made up of Architectural Granite & Marble (“AG&M”), Pental Surfaces (“Pental”), and Modul Marble (“Modul”), will be known as Architectural Surfaces Group (ASG).
Each of these entities is a distributor of interior surfaces, spanning a total of 13 locations across the United States.
Headquartered in Seattle, Pental Surfaces is a large independent distributor of natural stone, engineered stone, and tile serving the Western United States. Pental has five premium locations in Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Van Nuys, and Denver.
AG&M, based outside of Austin, Texas, is an importer and distributor of natural stone, engineered stone, and related products used in residential construction, commercial construction, and remodeling. It serves customers in Austin, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Nashville, and Raleigh.
Modul Marble is a supplier of natural stone, marble, and quartz slabs with locations in Sun Valley and Anaheim, CA, as well as Charlotte, NC.
The new parent company will offer operational improvements, allowing the brands to focus on their customer service instead. Each business will continue to operate under their respective brands.
Sunil Palakodati, Chief Executive Officer of ASG, stated, “The combination of AG&M, Pental, and Modul has allowed us to learn from each other’s strengths and utilize efficiencies from our combined scale to better serve our customers with innovative products and value-added service solutions.”
