ELMES INC was established in Torrance, California in April 1997 in order to introduce Japanese door handles to the American market. For over fifteen years, Elmes has steadily challenged and expanded their business in order to meet the growing demand for high end, elegant and sophisticated door handles.
All Elmes products are produced by our Japan based parent company, UNION Corporation. Since 1946, UNION has pursued advanced manufacturing of building hardware and is now the industry leader in Japan. Particularly in the field of door handles, their advanced technology has resulted in over 2,500 distinct designs in materials ranging from stainless steel, brass and bronze to compressed wood, titanium, carbon and porcelain.
