By Michael Goldin


My great-great grandfather was from a small town near Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. His name was Isidor Klumel, and he had seven sons. My great grandfather Nathan Klumel, came to the United States with some of his brothers. On the way, they had a stop-over in England. They spent a short time with a non-Jewish family friend with the last name “Goldin.” While details are sketchy, there were certain requirements with respect to immigration at the time that stated that you needed to have some kind of relative living in the United States. My great grandfather borrowed the name Goldin for use on his immigration paperwork; thus the Goldin family name was officially started.

The remaining members of Nathan’s family came to America in 1905 through Ellis Island. In the group were my great grandmother Ester, and her five children: Eva, Morris, Helen, David, and Theodore. It is believed that they settled in Brooklyn, but it may have been elsewhere in the NYC area. When my grandfather David grew up, he got a job with a local wood window manufacturing company. This is where he learned to be a “glazier.” During World War I, the shipyard industry in Newburgh was growing. The family moved to Newburgh in search of better work. Morris moved up first, followed later by the rest of the family.

In the mid 1920s, David decided that he would rather work for himself, rather than for others. He and his brother Morris started “Goldin Plate & Mirror Works” in 1926. They set up shop at 9-11 Johnson Street with a warehouse facility at 131 Water Street, and took out two full-page advertisements in the local phone book.

In the 1940s, they moved the business to 46 William Street and added “Hardware” to the business. The name was also changed to “Goldin Brothers.” David started to develop some health issues in 1956, so he called in his son, Leon (my father), who had returned from serving in Korea in 1955, to help out with the company. It continued to grow and in 1961, became incorporated as “David Goldin & Son, Inc.” and remained that way for nearly 30 years.

I entered the business in 1989 as Vice President. When my father and I determined that changing the name to “David Goldin & Son & Grandson” would not fit on our letterhead, we ultimately decided on “Goldinson Corp.” so as to prevent future issues. I became president in 2000. In 2004 I relocated the business to 7 Crap Apple Court in Newburgh, where it is today.
