Most of our cabinet hardware manufacturers primarily make cabinet knobs and pulls, but not Alno. Alno is a German company formed in 1927, but was not built as a kitchen hardware company, but as a kitchen company. Still today, Alno is a top European cabinet maker, with its hardware accounting for just a small percent of its total revenue.
That is not to suggest that Alno should be taken lightly as a cabinet hardware manufacturer. The company has amassed an excellent reputation for quality and style. Make no mistake, Alno is a high end brand, rarely the choice of the discount shopper, but extremely popular amongst customers aiming for a distinctive look for their kitchen.
Indicative of the high end nature of Alno Hardware is their beautiful line of appliance pulls. While virtually all kitchens contain knobs and pulls, appliance pulls are an uncommon item in budget kitchens, yet a favorite item in designer kitchens where customers want their refrigerator handles to match their pulls.
