Our Famous Legacy

Famous Supply founder, Hyman Blaushild, came to the United States from Latvia in 1922 where he continued his profession as a sheet metal contractor in Cleveland, Ohio. As a contractor, Hyman understood the value and importance of partnering with a wholesaler. When he was not getting the service he needed, he formed direct supplier relationships and changed the focus of his business from contracting to wholesale distribution in 1933. Today, Famous is still wholesale only serving trade professionals.
