Arnold's Factory Supplies was incorporated in 1933 and began as a manufacturer of liquid, cold seal adhesives used for many applications including box closure and general bonding. In addition, the company also manufactured inks for marking and coding used almost exclusively for packaging.
In the mid 1940's, as the packaging market continued to grow, the company invested in machinery and equipment to manufacture wood and corrugated shipping containers in an effort to diversify its offering to the Mid-Atlantic region. Relationships with global manufacturers such as Northrop Grumman, General Electric and Bethlehem Steel propelled Arnold's to the forefront of Baltimore packaging companies.
In the early 60's, as manufacturers began establishing distribution channels for their products, Arnold's Factory Supplies partnered with the 3M Company and officially became a packaging distributor.
Since then, Arnold's has joined forces with the premier global manufacturers of packaging materials including Sealed Air, Signode, Pregis, Orion and Autobag.
With the ability to represent the top suppliers in the packaging industry, the Company looked at expanding its market reach in 2011. We acquired several packaging companies in the Northern Virginia market, which expanded our customer base to all of the counties in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. We have our own fleet of delivery trucks that service the Maryland, Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, Delaware and Southern Pennsylvania markets.
