Kraftco Hardware has been serving Central Arkansas since 1950 and has been family owned and operated.  In 2019, Kraftco's leadership decided to diversify into tropical fish with an emphasis on African Cichlids!

Kraftco Building Supply opened in 1950, when a local builder named Garner Smith decided he would like to own a supply store for his construction projects. Three years later, Garner sold Kraftco to a Little Rock civil engineer named Louis Bona. Louis quickly adjusted the business from primarily focusing on contractors to becoming a successful retailer for the "do it yourselfer".  Louis served as the president of Kraftco from 1953 to 1997, when he retired.  Louis's son, Dick Bona has served as the president of the company since 1997 and has worked for the business for over 50 years! In 2020, Dick alongside his son William, took the plunge into the Aquatic industry looking to diversify their business and serve another customer!
