Combs & Associates, Inc.

Manufacturer’s Representatives Serving North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota & Western Wisconsin Since 1980


About Us

Combs & Associates is a second-generation manufacturers’ representative agency serving the contract hardware, architectural and end-user needs for the products we represent in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Western Wisconsin.

The agency was started by Bill Combs, Sr. in 1980 not long after he left the Hager Hinge Co. where Bill Sr. began his career as the original Hager Hinge factory salesman for said territory in 1956. 

It was from Bill Sr. that we learned the importance of relationships with customers and manufacturers and how those business relationships would become the foundation of our over 50 years of industry experience.
