Fresno hardware company Hudson Hardware announced Tuesday that it is creating a brand of hardware that will appeal to both tech and hobbyists, while at the same time bringing in more money for Fresno’s struggling economy.
The company is a joint venture between Hudson, a California-based hardware company, and New York-based Hudson Hardware, a maker of modular and industrial-style home-based home appliances and other products.
The companies plan to begin shipping Hudson hardware to the market later this year.
Hudon is the only firm in the United States to have a product with both a hard-wired and wireless connection.
Its new Hudson Hardware is meant to provide the same functionality but on a modular design, which means it can be customized with more hardware, such as fans and a doorbell.
The brand also makes a wide range of other products that are similar to Hudson’s.
Hudsons product is geared toward those looking for affordable, industrial-looking and versatile home appliances.
The company is offering a range of models ranging from the $250 to $1,500 range.
The cheapest model will run you about $1 a month, and the most expensive will run $3,400.
The range will include the optional Hudson Hub, a $1 million product that features a built-in microphone, speaker and light.
The Hudson Hardware brand also will have products designed for people who like to customize their home with an open-plan living room, a walk-in closet and more.
Helsinki is another company that has a similar product, but is also making hardware with a wide array of customization options.
Its company name is part of its name and features two open-wall bathrooms, two walk-up closets, a laundry room, and a garage door.
The products are priced at between $300 and $1.4 million.
The new Hudson hardware will not be available to consumers until at least 2020, according to Hudson.
Hudson Hardware has also partnered with other hardware companies and retailers to offer the Hudson Hardware Hudson Hardware.
The Hudson Hardware branding will be available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada starting in 2018.
