About Us


Commerical Door Specialist

Hartson Total Opening, Inc. is a stocking distributor of many products, including hollow metal doors and frames, wood doors, and a variety of hardware. Specializing in the sale of Division 8 and 10 materials, we provide customers with doors, frames, and hardware as well as all of the specialty items. We also install the majority of the products we sell. Hardware is pre-installed at our shop to provide faster installation on site. In addition, we can customize our doors and frames at our facility, so we are able to provide customers with unique and custom products that truly fit their needs.

We have more than 25 years of experience

Our Story So Far

Hartson Total Opening, Inc. was founded in January 2008, by Douglas Hartson Jr. and Kevin Hartson, with the purchase of the door, hardware, and specialty divisions of Jeffords Steel and Engineering Company, where Doug had been the manager for nearly 20 years. In 2012, Kathleen Hartson purchased the majority shares in the company from Kevin and became Chief Executive Officer. In 2020, we purchased our own building and are now located at 1509 Military Turnpike.


As a small, family owned and operated business, we pride ourselves on service. Our highly skilled team with over 100 years of experience combined, including our Architectural Hardware Consultant, will recommend and advise you on the right products to meet your needs. We have an outside sales representative who meets with customers and advises the correct product solutions. He will also field measure to ensure complete satisfaction.
