What’s known today as “Arnold’s” actually started in 1929 by Ellis Island immigrants David and Rose Norman under the name “Norman’s Stationery Company” and specialized in stationery, greeting cards, and gifts.
In 1950, their son, Arnold, joined the mix and created his own branch of the company selling office furniture. In 1973, with the office furniture department overshadowing the stationery side, David and Rose passed the reigns onto Arnold and the company was officially renamed Arnold’s Office Furniture Inc. For 32 years, Arnold Norman continued to improve on his business’s positive reputation as one of the best new and used office furniture suppliers in Pennsylvania.
Fast forward to 2005, when Mr. Jay Berkowitz bought Arnold’s office furniture company with the proceeds from selling a locally successful paper company he owned for 25 years, sending Arnold into peaceful retirement.
From this transaction until today, Jay and his son, Jordan, have steadfastly carried Arnold’s torch and continue to strengthen Arnold’s position as a major force in the used office furniture business by increasing sales more than 25x what they were in 2005.

Also, with its 110,000 square feet of warehouse space full of office furniture in Bridgeport, Pennsylvania and 50,000 sq ft of warehouse space in Philadelphia, Arnold’s is one of the nation’s largest office furniture recycler that buys and warehouses mass inventories of used office and systems furniture. This allows businesses to see some return on assets that they might normally discard, while saving the environment by not having to landfill anything. Arnold’s will refurbish office furniture and systems as necessary, and resell to businesses at a significant discount than if purchased new – making the entire process a win-win-win-win for all parties involved.
