Lowe Hardware started in a 1,600 sq. ft. barn built by Bill Lowe in the coastal town of Owls Head, ME. The son of a Deer Isle boat builder and yacht skipper, Bill had extensive boat building and repair experience, cultivating a career in yacht hardware. Formally educated as a machinist, the shop’s leader focused on the intricate details required to complete large custom projects. Upon his son Elliot’s graduation from the University of Maine with a degree in mechanical engineering, the shop turned to focus on developing their business to serve the demand for top quality customizable interior hardware.
Together, we take great pride in pursuing our craft on Maine’s coast, producing timeless, durable hardware using both modern and time tested traditions.
