About Us

Upon returning home from World War II, Al Simon had a vision and a dream. Having lived through the Great Depression, and surviving the worse economic disaster in US history, he knew he had one chance to build a future in the worst of times. In May of 1948, he became the sole proprietor of a mom and pop hardware store in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. After 40 years of a successful retail business, he saw the opportunity to expand his horizons, and his inventory, and reestablished Simon’s Industrial Supply, as a wholesale distributor of janitorial, facility maintenance and paper products. In 1983, his son Mark joined the company, followed by his grandson Eric, who continues to grow and uphold the family legacy. Al Simon, although no longer a part of the daily operations of the business, still remains active and involved in the company he founded almost 70 years ago.

Simon’s reputation has been built on strong work ethics and values, focusing on superior customer service and competitive pricing. We strive each day to improve every aspect of our company by providing unlimited personal attention and respect to our valued customers. Our vast inventory permits us to service all facets of a business by supplying them with their essentials to their special requests. We are also available 24/7 via email or phone. We are honored and privileged to be the preferred vendor for hundreds of industries in the New York Tri State area, in addition to businesses across the country. We are humbled by our growing success and owe it all to our loyal and trusted customers.
