About M. Block and Sons
M. Block and Sons has always been defined by a culture of excellence.
We are a privately held company committed to satisfying the distribution needs of the manufacturer and the retailers they serve. We’re large enough to provide the resources for complex solutions – yet lean enough to provide the flexible, customized service your business deserves. For over 100 years we have made the necessary investments in people, infrastructure and technology that have kept us out front in the ever changing complexity of retail distribution. Our vast experience, expertise and “can do” attitude has earned us one of the finest reputations in the industry.
To serve with excellence as a value added partner in the supply chain between the manufacturer and the retailer.
In an industry where clients are seeking it and consumers are demanding it, we will bring clarity both to the process and to the results. We will express this value through openness and transparency in all aspects of our working relationships with manufacturers and the customers we serve together. We pledge to act with integrity at all times, especially when facing difficulties or challenges. “Integrity” refers to our compliance with the highest ethical standards, our fairness and honesty in conducting every activity, and our perseverance in pursuing the ideal forms for our operations and management.
No company can survive, let alone thrive, for more than one hundred years unless it is able to adapt with the times, recognize new opportunities and innovate to capitalize on them. Beginning in 1908 as a manufacturer of metal cabinets, hampers and pantry ware, M. Block diversified into distribution when steel became rationed during World War II. Since the early 1970’s we have focused exclusively on distribution; refining, improving and strengthening our services as the times dictated.
Today, M. Block stands alone as the most complete and progressive supplier of warehousing, distribution and retail support services. Our unique approach of combining traditional 3PL services together with value added support services – all wrapped around a unified state-of-the-art IT platform – provides manufacturers and retailers with the most complete and comprehensive distribution supply chain infrastructure available.
