Artmark Associates Incorporated, electrical export representatives, was founded in 1945 by Arthur Levinson and Mark Shafer (ART & MARK). Initially the export business was concentrated in the Caribbean, Central America and South America and shortly thereafter expanded to Asia. With their expansion into Asia, the original founders saw an opportunity to establish an import business and our sister company, Artmark Products Corporation, emerged as an importer of industrial components servicing our U.S. based principles.
In the early 1970's the Middle East and African markets were growing rapidly. ARTMARK reacted to this opportunity and hired ARTMARK's current owner and president, Frank Kiernan, to develop this geographic area. A majority shareholder since 1986, Mr. Kiernan concluded buying the interests of the original founders in 1990 and has expanded both businesses aggressively to meet the growing needs of our worldwide customers.
In response to this growth, ARTMARK relocated its' corporate offices from New York City to Miami, Florida in 1994. In 1998, ARTMARK's expansion culminated with the building of a 40,000 square foot corporate office and warehouse complex to meet the increasing warehousing needs of both the export and import businesses.
Artmark Associates currently sells to more than 40 countries worldwide and represents many of the most recognizable brand names in the electrical industry. The key to our success and longevity is our responsiveness to our customer needs, competitive pricing, quality and service. We invite you to utilize our services and experience our tradition of quality since 1945.
