About Us

A&B Wiper leverages three generations of expertise in wiping products. While it might not sound sexy, our customers have come to rely on us for the quality and inventory they need to run their businesses well. We tirelessly source opportunities from across the globe, and bring the value home to you.  We also buy back repurposed worn textiles into heavy industry wiping cloths. We service national catalog companies, mass merchants and local distributors with a complete line of task specific wiping cloths, all with the personal service and attention that sets us apart from the rest.

A&B Wiper was incorporated in 1947 by two brothers, Albert and Ben Kanefsky. Initially A&B Wiper repurposed scrap products generated in textile plants into wiping cloths for industry use. Their core customers were heavy industries such as steel manufacturers, ship chandlers, automotive plants. As textile production began to move offshore in the late 1980s, a new opportunity emerged. We began to forge relationships with small towel manufacturers and knit generators around the globe. As the manufacturing base in Asia and Central America expanded, A&B Wiper also began to expand product lines, and seek opportunistic purchases.

Today, A&B Wiper stocks the largest inventory of off-priced home and institutional terry towels in the country. We also have a complete line of wiping cloths sourced from the largest generators on the planet. Our sourcing team and inspectors cover every continent looking for values we can pass along to our customers. We keep in constant communication with our customers providing you with our current stock lists and industry updates. We stock many items on both the East and West Coast to provide prompt service nationwide. Please give us a call to find out how we can provide you with the same values and service thousands of our customers have come to expect from us every day.
