Created by two brothers and their cousin in 1958, Albert & Co. earned their reputation by specializing in paperclip packaging. Soon, they became an office supplies wholesaler. In the 1980's, the company created the brand ALBA and took a dramatic shift when they decided to focus on designing and manufacturing their own products. Those products are the end result of ALBA's continuing effort to combine ergonomy with trend analysis, appealing design, and packaging. Today ALBA is still managed by their founding family, and they strive to provide products that offer comfort, proper function, and excellent value to their customers.
