He did his job well, but as he watched companies struggle to keep pace with demand, he came to believe that better supplies and bigger innovations shouldn't come at the expense of excellent service.


On December 1, 1944, Alvah Gilbert took that conviction and founded Quality Mill Supply Company. He knew his company's success would hinge on a simple notion that still sustains the company today: Service and success should always be about doing what you're supposed to do - and then some.

For over seven decades, Quality Mill has led the industry with its unique customer-centric model – partnering with customers to solve problems and introducing innovation to give customers a competitive edge.
