Redeem Quote


A Plus Warehouse was founded in 1996 by Ed Stairman. Ed fell in love with materials handling at the age of 13, when he started working at Langley Mfg. His father, Melvin Stairman, was a partner at this company and taught Ed much of what he knows today! Despite going to school to be an electrical engineer, Ed could not resist the lure of the material handling industry and started working at Langley Mfg. full time shortly after his college graduation.

Taking the skills acquired from Langley Mfg., Ed started A Plus Warehouse out of his basement in the noble Swampscott, Massachusetts. At this time, Ed had a 1-year-old baby and his wife stayed home to care for baby Carrie. Failure was not an option!

Rise of the Internet

A Plus Warehouse’s claim to fame is being one of the first companies to ever sell lockers online! The internet has drastically changed the world we live in, and A Plus Warehouse was able to immediately adapt to the changing times. The internet provides a way for customers to be in constant communication with the team as opposed to needing to wait for quarterly catalogs!


A Family Business

Materials handling is a Stairman family affair! Currently, Ed’s oldest daughter Carrie is Vice President of the company. His younger daughter Izzy also has strong interest in A Plus Warehouse. She is currently a college student at the University of Massachusetts, and often interns at A Plus Warehouse during her breaks. Carrie is also currently pregnant with her first child, and possible future material handler!
