Since 1950, Alvin & Company has been a primary source for drafting supplies and drawing equipment. From mechanical pencils to drafting tables, Alvin is a well-known importer, manufacturer, and distributor of graphic arts, drafting, fine art, office, and craft products.
Founder Alvin "Al" Shoham was inspired to start his company after serving in Germany in WWII. He was impressed by the quality and precision of the Germans' finely made compasses and drawing tools, and, when he returned home to Connecticut, Al began distributing supplies from his family's farmhouse.
Today, Alvin & Company offers a wide assortment of exclusively designed products and is the steadfast choice of professionals seeking precision drafting and architectural instruments.
