We are affiliated with Ace Hardware Corporation based in Oak Brook, IL which is a retailer-owned hardware wholesaler that began operation in 1924

Dan and Ruth Steinacker moved to Fostoria, Ohio in 1992 after carefully researching the need and customer base for a local hardware store. At the time, they were interested in purchasing an existing hardware store, but ultimately decided to open their own store.

The couple opened the doors of their new store on West Tiffin Street in the Fostoria Town Center in September 1992. Meeting with success, the store rapidly expanded in size along with the inventory. In 1996 they opened a Rental Department. In 1999, they added a commercial supply department. Continuing to feel the need for expansion, the store moved to its present location at 1656 N. Countyline Street in April of 2000, and became an ACE dealer in November 2001. Since becoming an ACE dealer Steinacker & Sons Hardware has continued to expand its inventory and customer base, it is considered a Super Hardware store by ACE standards and carries a complete line of merchandise in all major departments as well as the Husqvarna line of power equipment which was added in February 2004. The Fostoria location expanded again in 2007 adding a full line Radio Shack store with in the hardware store, making Steinacker & Sons Hardware in Fostoria the one stop shop for all hardware and home electronics needs.

In March 2005 Dan and Ruth’s eldest son, Luke, rejoined the company and with Dan developed plans to open a second company store in the summer of 2005. Vermilion Ace Hardware opened its doors at 4781 Liberty Ave. in January 2006 and had its Grand Opening in April of 2006. Located in Vermilion, Ohio it also is considered a Super Hardware store and carries the Husqvarna line of power equipment as well as a boating and marine department and the popular line of Benjamin Moore Paints. The Vermilion location also added a Rental Department in 2011.
