“You don’t build a business with building of brick and stone. You build it with people. If they have a part of the company, they work harder and better. And that’s what makes the company go.”
In 1927 EP Arnold pulled together $500 using his savings and borrowed funds from friends to start our company, Arnold Motor Supply. This year as we celebrate 90 years in business we remember that young entrepreneur and the innovations he brought to our industry.
Today over 650 people work for Arnold Motor Supply and we have stores in five states, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Missouri and Illinois. We’ve diversified into Industrial Paints and Automotive Refinishing products. We also own and operate Midwest Cylinder Head, a machine shop in Nevada, Iowa.
Thank you for your business and here’s to another 90 years!
