Wood-Metal Industries, Inc. was founded in 1942 by four men who had been salesmen for Whitehead Monel Kitchens Co., a division of International Nickel Co. that was selling white metal kitchen cabinets that were popular throughout the 1930s. The four—Ted Gronlund and Dick Nellis, Sr., of New York City and Charles Wall, Sr., and Caswell Holloway of Philadelphia—realized that, with the imminent involvement of the United States in World War II, the production of steel would be shifted to the war effort. The four founded Wood-Metal Industries, Inc. in 1942 in a small lumber-planing mill in Kreamer, Pennsylvania. Learn More >
