    In 2020 we re-launched our e-commerce website to create a better, more user-friendly experience that's easier to navigate, especially for our business account customers. The one-page checkout system makes for a speedy and efficient buying process. The re-launch also included a host of enhanced security measures. Your secure account gives you access to company information and purchase history that are safely stored and allows you to track purchases and shipments at your convenience.

    Also of importance is the fact that the entire Austin Hardware® team receives cyber security training to keep our systems safe, which, in turn, keeps your data safe as well.
