Established in 1984 by Milt & Doris Bates and Don & Barbara Coster, B&C Custom Hardware and Bath has grown to be one of the largest independent hardware and plumbing showrooms in Southern California. Through recessions and booms we have remained an Orange County owned business. In 2000 we opened a trade only showroom, B&C Select in the Laguna Design Center. This tightly edited boutique showroom offers the finest to designer and architects for their client’s projects. The Irvine location remains open to the public as well those in the building industry.
Most of our staff has been with us for over 10 years. Whether sales, warehouse or office personnel, when we say our team is “experienced” it is not just a word but a reality. We understand how the construction process works and are interested in helping your project run smoother. The sales staff takes pride in supplying the newest in design and technology while having knowledge about products that hasn’t been in production for years. Although we have supplied product for estates of sports and media celebrities, U.S. Presidents, and captains of industry we take each project big or small seriously.
We choose to surround ourselves with things that we love and that inspire us. We carefully look at each of our manufacturers to insure that they have the quality, value and performance that our customers have grown to expect from B&C. Many items are personally tested by our staff before we offer them for sale to our customers. We are constantly are in search of new, distinctive and innovative fixtures and hardware that will make our clients homes distinguished. Many of the lines we carry are OC exclusives to us which allows our discerning clients unique results.
