Allegro Industries today announced plans to move to South Carolina to accommodate the company’s significant growth. The new 50,000 square foot custom-built facility in the Greenville, SC area will improve manufacturing capabilities and overall service.

“Because we will be building the new facility from the ground up, we're able to design a space that facilitates efficiencies and accommodates equipment that will streamline our business,” explains Tom Johnston, President of Allegro Industries. “We've always been known for uncompromised quality and exceptional service, and this move will have a positive impact on every facet of our business.”

Founded in 1987, Allegro Industries is dedicated to offering high-quality safety equipment to industry, through a comprehensive network of distributors, and by the thoughtful development of niche markets. The company engineers and manufactures complete lines of product within specific categories including respirators, air sources, ventilation equipment, ergonomics, respiratory accessories, eyewear maintenance and confined space equipment.

The move to South Carolina will occur in stages from October 2011 to January 2012, with key management relocating in the first stage. “Throughout the move, we’re focusing on customer service—creating a seamless transition from one location to the other. It will also allow us to ramp up our workforce with new talent from South Carolina,” says Johnston.

“We’ve been in Southern California for 24 years and we’re incredibly grateful to the communities and to the employees who have been part of the Allegro family from the beginning,” says Johnston. “The move to South Carolina will allow us to keep pace with our growth and continue to exceed our customers’ expectations everyday.”
