Celebrating 130 Years

A.M. Leonard Celebrates 130 Year Anniversary

Founded in 1885, A.M. Leonard has been serving horticultural professionals for over a century. 

When Ashbel Merrel Leonard founded his company, the country and the world looked quite different than they do today. The year was 1885, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was just founded in February, and their new “index” of 14 stocks debuted at 63 points.  During that same month, President Chester A. Arthur dedicated a new national landmark: the Washington Monument.

Four generations of ownership and 130 years later, A.M. Leonard (www.amleo.com) is still thriving, now as the leader in the horticultural tool and supply business. 

“It’s impossible to imagine all of the change that has happened in the last 130 years,” Company President Greg Stephens said. “From when my grandfather partnered with John Leonard in 1964 to the release of our first catalog in 1999, our company has grown and evolved with the times. The one thing we haven’t changed is our commitment to service.  We think that will always be valued.”

Now with over 10,000 products and their own Leonard brand line of exclusive tools, A.M. Leonard serves horticultural professionals through its Corporate Account Program, online stores and catalogs. Backed by the exclusive Leonard Lifetime Guarantee, it warranties its Leonard brand of tools for life.
