My name is Steve Behrens and I've been in the commercial door & hardware industry for over 32 years. I started out in 1986 in a hollow metal shop welding frames and prepping doors. I spent 8 years in that shop which later helped me greatly through the years performing Take-Offs, Estimating, Sales, Project Management, and Production/Operations Management...along with owning my own door & hardware business for 10 years. I've been the guy in the shop unloading the trucks and welding/fabricating the doors & frames; and also the guy in the office reading blueprints, creating door & hardware schedules & submittals, writing up shop work orders, as well as training the guys in the shop & checking their work. I now work for SPS in the Architectural Division doing complete Project Management...from project inception to completion.
Commercial doors, frames, and door hardware is all I do so you can be sure you will get accurate answers to any questions you may have and your order will be shipped right the first time, on time. I handle Division 8 commercial projects. SPS, as a company, also supplies building materials, glass & windows, Division 10 material, and residential doors & hardware. You can find information on these products at the SPS website.
We supply hollow metal doors, hollow metal frames, commercial door hardware, and wood doors for new and existing commercial buildings. We also stock a full line of commercial grade lever and knob locks, hinges, door closers, exit devices, and all other hardware needed to complete the opening.
We have a complete inventory of hollow metal doors, frames, and wood doors in our 26,000+ square foot hollow metal and wood door shop. We have a complete weld and modification shop with punches, presses, saws and all the equipment needed for modification and prep work. Fire rated hollow metal doors and frames are stock as we are a UL certified fire label shop for both hollow metal and wood doors. SPS has been supplying Building Materials since 1954. We have 3 tractor trailers with forklift service, flatbed dump trucks and box vans for delivery service.
We supply to the southeastern United States, the Caribbean, Central and South America, and we will ship anywhere else in the world. Some of the export jobs I have done in the past include:
along with several smaller jobs in the Bahamas and Barbados. We are located on the east coast of South Florida which makes us ideal for export work. We will deliver your material in our trucks to the Port of Palm Beach or any other port you prefer and give it to the freight forwarder of your choice along with the Bill of Lading and all other necessary paper work.
