Alessi Equipment Co. Thinks BIG, gets BIGGER

January, 2008, Mt. Vernon, NY.

Ray and Gerry Alessi officially opened the company's gigantic new 20,000 sq. ft. facility in Mt. Vernon, NY. in August 2007. It's a dream come true for a business that Ray began as a start-up Tramac dealership in 1988 (joined by his son, Gerry, in 1990). In those two decades, Alessi Equipment Company has become firmly established as one of the premiere hammer / attachment dealers in the country.

The new facility includes the latest state-of-the-art equipment , all the hydraulic tools used in the manufacturers' factories, hydraulic pits, and an expanded parts department and inventory. This cuts in half the time needed for assembly and service.

It all goes to prove the adage: hard work and dedication pay off. The dedication in this case is the Alessis' meticulous knowledge of their products combined with a thorough understanding of their customers' unique requirements -- project by project. They have an uncanny ability to design, adapt, and build, no matter what the needs of the job may be. In a clear case of role reversal, manufacturers often turn to them for expert assistance when faced with unusual applications.

As business has grown, so has the need for more technically savvy engineers. During the year, the Alessis doubled their personnel and field technicians to better accommodate their customers!
