When Arnold Young, President of A&M Industrial, started a small hardware store back in 1954, he had the right entrepreneurial spirit. His go-getter attitude accelerated the growth of his

In the 1950s, the neighborhood known
as the Ironbound section of Newark,
N.J., featured a mix of heavy industry
and a large, multi-ethnic working class. It was also home to A&M Industrial, which started as a small retail store in 1954 and soon began supplying the surrounding companies with industrial hardware. Over the
next few decades, as nearby factories started migrating out of the Northeast to southern states and offshore locations, the company recognized the need to focus on the industries and essential services that remained vibrant along the Eastern seaboard.
In 2013, MDM is recognizing distributors that are innovative in their approach to their markets. A&M Industrial, Rahway, NJ, was selected as an MDM Market Mover for its shift in focus away from products to essential services and its Emergency Response Team.
