Custom Service Hardware
CSH began in 1977, when Frank Rasmussen began building waterbeds in his Cedarburg barn. Frustrated with the inability to get all the parts he needed, Frank decided to make his own waterbed brackets. Seeing the need to help cover costs of the parts, Frank decided to sell the excess parts to other waterbed builders. “I sat down with an 11×17 sheet of paper and laid out all of our products we offered… and created the first catalog,” Rasmussen said. In came the orders. The packaging and shipping department were Frank’s two daughters. As business grew, friends from high school joined in.
