About Cliffside Industries

The Cliffside legacy began on April 24, 1987 as the dream of its founder, Walter Zaleskie. After having been involved in the kitchen and bath industry for nearly 15 years, Walter had the dream to start his own company, carving his niche in the area of decorative cabinet hardware.

Cliffside Industries truly began with one man, one idea and one knob! Walter ran his office out of the basement of his home and rented warehousing from any company that had space to spare, while traveling to the Far East and Europe in search of quality crafted hardware at competitive prices. Walter’s first hardware board was both limited and modest, but it accompanied him everywhere he went as he drove up and down the East Coast and across the Midwest, visiting cabinetmakers and kitchen dealers far and wide.

Now, what began with one knob has grown to nearly two thousand products. What started with one man has grown into a team of hardworking, dedicated professionals. What began in the basement of a home is now a warehouse and office complex located in the heart of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.


Cliffside Industries’ current product line is anchored by our extensive line of cabinet knobs and pulls in solid brass. Our industry-leading solid brass hinges are available in a variety of styles and finishes and are a must to complete the look of your kitchen and bath cabinets. To accompany knobs, pulls, and hinges, Cliffside has a selection of solid brass cabinet latches in two styles, available in ten signature finishes. When paired with our appliance pulls, these hardware lines combine to form Cliffside’s five solid brass hardware suites, providing manufacturers and designers alike the ability to coordinate hardware throughout an entire room, an entire floor, or an entire home.

In today’s industry, Cliffside realizes the importance of good service to the customer. On orders of in-stock product, your hardware departs our dock within 48 hours of receipt. When surveyed, our customers give us perfect scores on our ability to get cabinet hardware to their door; many say that the ink is barely dry on their order and the product is already on their doorstep.

The past 25 years have brought big changes to Cliffside, along with the entire kitchen and bath industry. In a day when hardware is available anywhere, one thing has remained the same about Cliffside Industries: we are still a family-owned company whose founder remains at the helm overseeing operations and product development. We take pride in servicing all of our customers, many who have been with us since the beginning. Dedication to our nationwide network of dealers and consumers is as important to us today as it was in April 1987.

Our mission is to serve the hardware needs of consumers through our business customers in the kitchen and bath industry with excellent service and ageless, elegant products crafted from high-quality materials.
