About Us –

AJM was founded as a manufacturer of paper and plastic products in 1957 by three (3) Detroit area brothers who eleven (11) years earlier began selling retail packaging, cleaning and office supplies and equipment and consumer disposables out of a small warehouse in Detroit’s Eastern Market.  Over many years, we gradually evolved from our broadline distributor beginnings into a major paper products manufacturer, today employing nearly 3,000 people and operating eight (8) manufacturing and five (5) warehouse/distribution facilities strategically located throughout the United States.   

We’re still family owned and operated, still manufacturing our products in the good old USA and still providing our customers with the same reliable service and quality products they’ve come to expect from AJM for nearly 65 years now.   It’s a simple formula, no doubt, but you can’t argue with success.   Today we’re the nation’s leading manufacturer of private label paper plates, cups and bowls, lunch bags and lawn and leaf bags.


Career Development –

At AJM, we realize we will only go as far as our employees can take us and, for that reason, we invest millions of dollars every year on both classroom and on-the-job training to develop our employees’ skills and promote a culture of learning and continuous improvement.  There are no barriers to impede your progress here and no ceilings to halt your advance.  You’ll control your own destiny, and we will help you reach your full potential with both in-house development programs and tuition reimbursement for undergraduate and graduate level college studies.  Join our team and see where your AJM journey takes you!
