Colony Hardware to Open in Orange


The Orange, Connecticut Economic Development Corporation, is pleased to announce that Colony Hardware Corporation will be relocating their Corporate Headquarters and Distribution Center to 269 South Lambert Road, Orange, Connecticut. Colony Hardware started as a hardware store in Meriden, Connecticut during the 1940s and was purchased by Michael Weiner and a partner in 1988. Under Mr. Weiner’s leadership, the company has grown to become the recognized regional leader in the distribution of tools, safety equipment and supplies for professional contractors. Colony also has a tool repair and rental division. The Company currently operates locations in Albany, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; and Landover, Maryland.

“We are very excited about the move to Orange and believe this new facility will enable us to achieve the next level of growth for our customers and company,” said Weiner. First Selectman James Zeoli of Orange is very excited about Colony choosing Orange as a location for business expansion. He said, “The Town has worked hard to promote a business friendly environment and Colony was able to see this. This is a key business location with easy access from Route 1 or I‐95. The Town of Orange looks forward to a long‐term relationship with Colony Hardware Corporation.”

Colony’s current Headquarters and Distribution Center is located in New Haven, Connecticut. The company currently employs 100 associates in Connecticut. Management expects to complete the move sometime this summer. For more information, please contact:
