More about Allor Manufacturing
Allor Manufacturing was founded in 1970 for the purpose of making conveyor chain and conveyor chain replacement parts for the automotive and foundry industries. The company began in the garage of the president’s grandfather where rollers, pins, and bushings were manufactured with lathes and drill presses.
Allor’s reputation and market share rapidly expanded. In 1976, Allor built a 20,000-square-foot facility in Novi, Michigan, and entered the steel mill market. As a producer of steel mill coil conveyor chain, Allor was limited to buying coil conveyor wheels until Allor engineers developed wheels that improved upon the original OEM wheel. This allowed Allor to gain a competitive edge and grow each year.
In 1995, Allor moved to a new 85,000-square-foot facility in Brighton, Michigan. This expansion allowed Allor to substantially grow in other areas of heavy industry and become a leading supplier of leveling equipment spare parts, new levelers for high-yield plate products, tension levelers and spare parts, mining conveyors and specialty wheels and bearings, and heavy-duty chain.
The success of Allor has been attributed to:
- Strong sales and marketing programs
- Highly skilled and creative engineering team
- Commitment to customers’ needs and solution products
- Excellence and dedication from every Allor employee
