Kurtz Hardware Co. is one of the oldest family-owned businesses in central Iowa.
When the Equitable Building, Iowa’s first skyscraper, was constructed in 1924, Bob Kurtz’s grandfather supplied some of the hardware.
Today, the 19-story building in downtown Des Moines is under construction again, being renovated into loft apartments, and Kurtz is providing doors and hardware for the project.
Things tend to come full circle when you have been in business for a century and a half.
One of the oldest family-owned businesses in greater Des Moines, Kurtz Hardware Co. is celebrating 150 years.
