Our story began in 1889, the year Sophia Blickman began manufacturing pots and pans in her garage to sell to neighbors in her community. By 1923, the garage was no longer an adequate production facility. The S. Blickman Company (as it was then known) moved to a plant in Weehawken, New Jersey and started marketing to local hospitals. From a modest beginning in hospital kitchens to expanded product lines in surgical suites, the steel-based company created an extraordinary legacy of service to the nation’s healthcare industry.
In 1975, Fred Heisman and Ben Freedman acquired the company’s medical-surgical division, renamed it Blickman Health Industries, Inc. and moved to Fairlawn, New Jersey.
Success eventually compelled an additional move to larger quarters: a 71,000-square-foot plant in Clifton, New Jersey where Blickman currently resides. Along with the square footage, the company has grown to be the largest manufacturer in its class and maintains a sharp focus on inventive products, superior services and savvy solutions.
Now, Blickman has opened a new chapter in its history book, which features Anthony Lorenzo as the new owner as well as a new name: Blickman Industries. Mr. Lorenzo is a well-established financial specialist that is excited to be managing the strategic direction of the company. His goal is to drive Blickman forward and up by combining his vision for success with Blickman’s extensive industry experience to help the company to grow even further.
