In 1968 David Magoon left his job as a Sales Manager for the L.L. Brown Paper Company in Adams, MA to immediately start up University Products. Today, our manufacturing facility is just 100 yards from where it all started five decades ago.
We continue to manufacture many of the same high quality library supplies that we started making back in1968: that some libraries and book processors still rely on today. Now though, many more of our customers look to us for the museum quality archival products that have become the true essence of our business. Thanks to the support of many professional librarians, conservators, archivists, curators, and other museum professionals – University Products offers the industry’s most complete selection of museum quality products and archival materials.
Ultimately, our customers are not institutions – our customers are people with widely ranging interests and skill sets but with the same basic mission: to preserve what can’t be replaced, regardless of whether doing so benefits us personally, professionally, or even culturally.
We distribute our products into all corners of the world through an unparalleled network of dealers and distributors. Of course, customers anywhere can purchase directly through this website or simply request one of our catalogs.
Eighty-five percent of our products are made in our own factory in Western Massachusetts. As a manufacturer, we also produce custom or OEM products. Additionally, we do distribute a number of products from quality manufacturers located throughout the world.
The last 50 years have been very good to University Products, and on behalf of the founding Magoon Family, our ownership, and our employees, please accept our grateful and emphatic thank you for your support.
