The Late Arthur Szliter
Since 1946, H.J. Oldenkamp has ranked among the nation’s largest distributors of specialty home building products including Formica and Corian. Arthur Szliter joined H.J. Oldenkamp in 1962, where he quickly rose to become the president and sole owner for nearly three decades. In 1991, he sold his interest to his loyal employees to focus on residential development and home building. Art went on to form Arteva Homes with Vito Terracciano and his son Brian Szliter, where under his leadership the partners used their collective industry experience, long-term supplier relationships, and creative drive to build lifestyle centered developments with cutting-edge custom homes and condominiums. By using the guiding principles Art instilled upon them, Brian and Vito are continuing Art’s legacy of excellence by focusing on the customer and constructing high quality homes through artistry and innovation.
