"Bustin's ISO 9002 distinction and design capabilities, along with M W Supply's diversified product offerings, will provide our clients with more cost effective tools", said Mike Williams, president of M W Supply.
The Bustin story is rich in history: From the company's start as an industrial supplier in the Bronx in the late 1920s, to the company's turnaround under the previous ownership of Mark and Wendy Lichty, the capability of the company has continued to grow both in scope and in technology.
In the late ‘20s, Bustin sponsored Babe Ruth's "Bustin Babes" as they toured from city to city playing against Lou Gehrig's "Larrapin Lous".
