In 1931, Irving Zaslow founded Jaffe’s Art Linens, a Philadelphia retail store that has grown into ATD-AMERICAN. For over 75 years we have been owned and operated by the Zaslow family. In fact nine members of the family are part of our management team.
Over our long history, we have grown into an international manufacturer and distributor of thousands of items including furniture, safety and security products, linens and clothing.
As our business has expanded, so have our facilities. In 1979, ATD-AMERICAN moved from Philadelphia to our current headquarters in Wyncote PA. ATD’s building, with its innovative design, was included in Interiors: Third Book of Offices as one of the “12 finest buildings in American architecture.”
Change is a constant, but one element that remains the same is our reliance upon “old fashioned” business principles that will never go out of style. Personal accountability, caring and hard work are the values ingrained in ATD’s culture and are the foundation for our superior service and quality.
