Husband and wife Joshua and Heather Carpenter founded A&J Industrial in 2007. A&J Industrial started off as a home business specializing in brokering recyclable Commodities. Within a few months of operating, the company quickly grew and added three more contracted employees. A&J was one of the first companies to see the value of the plastic in the Ag industry. The business model was simple; buy full truckloads of recyclable commodities such as cardboard, drip tape, drip tube, as well as other material that was already processed at the supplier's location. The full truckloads would then be sold to a paper or plastic mill. Another service that is provided is setting up the logistics involving transportation from the supplier to the customer.
