The Growth Of The Paper Mart Family: Looking Back At 100 Years
Paper Mart began in 1921 as California Towel & Linen Supply, family owned and operated, based out of a small, Los Angeles garage. G.A. Frick served as both salesman and delivery man while his wife Emma handled the bookkeeping. Unfortunately the climate in the 1920s was tumultuous and we faced many challenges as a company and as a country, narrowly surviving both the Great Depression and World War II.
Throughout it all, we offered quality products that served the needs of our local, Los Angeles businesses. We even expanded our product offerings to consumables like paper towels, janitorial, and shipping supplies. During this time, second generation son Robert Frick assumed leadership and we became known as, Frick Paper Co.
With dreams to grow the company even further, third generation son, John Frick adjusted our business model to a regional discount mail order catalog business. This was a game changing business decision and Paper Mart made its mark.
John Frick was later joined by his brother Tom Frick and under their leadership, we grew our reach even further and took on the world wide web in 1995 as one of the first companies to add images to text, a decision which was novel and innovative.
As we embark onto the next 100 years, under the leadership and guidance of fourth generation daughter, Buffy Frick Simoni, we continue to build upon the Paper Mart legacy of providing quality products at an affordable price.
