FSB USA is a distribution center of the German brand FBS for the United States and the rest of North America. It was launched to facilitate access to the products of the world-famous hardware brand which has been producing superior quality door pulls, hinges, locksets and many other solutions for over one century.

The German brand was founded by Franz Schneider in the city of Iserlohn in the early 1880s as a shop for cabinet fittings. In 1909, the company was moved some 85 miles east to Brakel and started to produce door hardware. At the same time, its owner renamed the company as FSB. Ever since, these three letters - which stand for Franz Schneider's initials and the new location of the company's headquarters - have been closely connected with state of the art design, premium quality and outstanding performance. Initially one of the leading hardware brands in Europe, the company is today one of the global leaders in the industry.

"German Engineering". Many German companies are renowned for engineering excellence which has played an essential role in today's perception of German products as a synonym for quality, reliability and performance. And the Brakel-based company is no exception. Its top performing products are made from the highest quality stainless steel, aluminum, brass and bronze under strict quality control at every phase of the production process, ensuring top performance for many years to come.

Internationally Acclaimed Designers and Architects. The brand's hardware collections are designed by internationally acclaimed designers and architects, creating trendsetting products and according to many, works of art rather than mere stylish and visually pleasing hardware solutions. In fact, four door handles that were designed during the 1950s by Johannes Potente (1908-1987) were added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

Ecologically Friendly. The company was among the first in Germany to fully comply with the EU's strict ecological requirements and among the first to make environmental protection an integral part of their business operations.

Product Lines/Brands. The German brand is focused on architectural and door hardware, producing high-end knobs, pulls, hinges, locksets and various accessories, mainly in contemporary style with sleek and elegant lines.
