PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
In 1947, Norman Lieberman became one of the city’s premiere truckers, using his vehicles to distribute fresh flowers, the first type of freight to arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport. With the help of his son Merton, his business grew to include other global commodities such as pharmaceuticals, produce, and eventually, seafood - an increasingly desirable product throughout the Northeastern United States. Norman’s was the first and only company offering refrigerated distribution to the Fulton Fish Market. Merton’s eldest son Stacey came on board full time in 1970, and eventually, he expanded the company’s distribution areas to include other Northeast ports like Philadelphia, Boston and Baltimore. Today, what was once a two-man team, is now an incorporated business complete with over 25 employees, including Norman's Great grandson, Director of Operations, Jared Lieberman.
