Alliance Manufacturing, Inc. was established in 1994 as the result of a spin-off from a parent company that produced stainless steel food processing equipment. Jeff Brouchoud, Ken Manninen, and a partner purchased the parts washer division assets of the company just before its acquisition by another corporation. Alliance made its debut at the IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show) in September of that year, in Chicago, IL, displaying the first generation of the Aquamaster line of parts washers. By year-end, Alliance had secured orders for five machines. While engineering a custom monorail system, Alliance pioneered the first split-style, removable canopy design. Alliance was awarded a patent for this exclusive Full Access Canopy (U.S. No. 5,630,435). Alliance’s testament to producing quality equipment is evident in the high number of repeat customers. To date, Alliance has sold over 700 machines both in the U.S. and internationally. Expansion plans are underway so stay tuned in!
