Alps Wire Rope Corporation is proud to announce the grand opening of their new corporate headquarters location in Saint Charles, Illinois. The Mayor of Saint Charles will administer the official ribbon cutting celebration on July 27th, 2012.
The new IL location began operations on June 4th. Months of planning, and one brutal weekend of moving prior to the 4th , resulted in the move of 14 machines, including the Greenerd 1500 Ton Capacity Press, one of 8 swaging presses, which swages up to three inch, or 76mm wire ropes. In addition, Alps moved over 30 truckloads of inventory equaling over 1,055 tons of wire rope. This amazing undertaking was planned and organized by Alps very own Claude Willis.
Alps Wire Rope Corporation continues to maintain all of its four warehouses, strategically located throughout the United States (Ohio, California, Florida, and IL). In addition, they maintain other distribution locations, dedicated to specific product support functions, which are located in CT, MD, TN, OK, TX, CA, and CO. These 12 locations offer support to their distributors, and the Elevator, Oil & Gas, Construction, and Equipment Manufacturers who purchase Alps rope throughout the country.
The additional office and warehouse space of over 40,000 square feet, in the new IL facility, allows for greater efficiency and logistical support for Alps Wire Rope entire distribution network, while allowing for continued future growth. Alps is very excited about their new facility, their existing facilities, their quality products, and their excellent team. Alps main goal is to better serve their customers.
