Portland’s latest upstart, Krown Lab, announced today that it reached the one-year milestone at the end of April. Krown Lab’s initial product introduction of contemporary & modern architectural sliding door hardware that is “Crafted in Portland, Oregon” was first introduced in April ‘09 via an advertisement in Dwell Magazine and online on the company’s website. Within days of the magazine being in newsstands, traffic to the site sparked to life and emails and calls from around the globe began to stream in from places as far away as the UK and Australia. Architects, builders, designers and homeowners the world over are now choosing Krown Lab over expensive imports and traditional barn door hardware systems because of it’s modern look, and excellent price point. Portland architect, Brian Kimura of Holst Architecture, who has installed the system in his own home, had this to say about Krown Lab products. "A fresh design combined with solid engineering and ease of installation. With its unique exposed bearings, carriers and hanging track, my Oden system always attracts attention; yet beyond its distinctive look, this system slides precisely and effortlessly and is built to last." Despite the downward market of 2009, Krown Lab Creator, Stefan Andrén had this to say about the firm’s first year, “Fantastic, well beyond what we expected for our first year. My vision was to introduce a lineup that would be timeless & iconic, and the feedback from around the world is that we are spot on.”

Four local partners were chosen in the first quarter of 2010 to introduce Krown Lab products to local clients. National Builders Hardware Co., Chown Hardware, Winks Hardware and Hippos Hardware now showcase the entire Krown Lab product line. “Deciding which local retailers would showcase Krown Lab was easy. Being a Portland based company, we know our neighbors, friends and fans think of these companies the same way we do, like a trusted friend.” Said Ben Finklea, Krown Lab President. Taking aim at the national residential and commercial market is the next step in Krown Lab’s growth plan. An increasing list of highly respected, high-end hardware retailers and e-tailers are now bringing the innovative Krown Lab product lineup to a much larger audience (see list below). Tom Gross, CEO of Specialty Doors commented, “Krown Lab came along at just the right moment and is filling a long standing need in the architectural sliding door hardware market. Being a US based product with a contemporary look that is priced right is a winning combination.”
