Driven by family values and an independent spirit, PDQ has set the industry standard for service, quality and value for over 35 years. Our in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities give us the flexibility to create innovative, cutting edge products that meet and exceed our customer’s continually-evolving security and safety needs. From architectural hardware to cloud-hosted access management, PDQ prides itself on developing world-class, commercial-grade solutions that reliably deliver the confidence and control you need to effectively manage your business.

Built With Pride And The American Spirit.

At PDQ we manufacture architectural commercial grade mortise locks, cylindrical locks, deadbolts, hinges, door closers, exit devices, flat goods, and cloud-hosted access control including stand-alone and networked devices. All designed to provide the exceptional visual appeal and long service life. We also specialize in keying and keying systems and offer customers turn-around times that are unmatched in the industry.

Unlike other multi-national foreign-owned competitors, founder Bill Tell and his son Logan are dedicated to personally supervising and supporting the day-to-day operations of the company and the company’s senior level staff to ensure the highest quality products are manufactured to meet our customers’ expectations, uniformly and flawlessly.

PDQ is an independent, American-owned manufacturer we are able to provide a higher standard of quality, service and value. All PDQ products are designed, manufactured and/or assembled in the U.S.A. With distribution centers in Kansas City, MO, Auburn, WA, and Denver, CO. We offer incredibly fast delivery – typically 1-3 days that provides distributors, contractors, architects, and facility owners with the right product, right on time. That’s how we work at PDQ.

“We’re one of the few remaining door hardware manufacturers still family owned that offers that personal touch and independence that the larger, multi-national corporate conglomerates have difficulty matching. And that family spirit is what we’re able to relate to when serving our many, still family owned distributors,”
