The history of AB Martin is the story of how a poor farmer’s business grew into a highly successful building supply company over seven decades. Amos B. Martin, a Mennonite farmer from Lancaster County, PA, started selling metal panels in 1947. He had few resources, but his strong work ethic, frugal nature, and care for others were all the resources necessary. There were no aspirations of building a big business. He worked as a carpenter and built range shelters for free-range chickens. Since Amos used metal panels for the chicken shelters, neighbors soon began buying panels from him, and “Amos B. Martin Roofing” was born. Written for the 75th Anniversary of the company, interested readers will find many never-before-published stories, and will glean insights into the factors that led to AB Martin’s success. More Than Roofing introduces readers to the fascinating owners and employees behind AB Martin’s legacy of service. Learn how a family-owned company came from humble beginnings and continues to build on a Christian heritage guided by biblical principles to this day. (120pp. color illus. Author, 2022.)
