It started back in 1996 when my business partner founded Forklift Solutions, Inc. I went to work with him in 2003 as a field service technician and we instantly hit it off. I continued that career path and was promoted to shop foreman. Later, I was promoted to the Service Manager position where I gained a great deal of knowledge about how a dealership functions as a whole.
In 2010 it was time again to move up the “corporate ladder”. I was offered an “Alliance” with my partner and I excitedly accepted a new path in life. So Alliance Material Handling was born, and I became the Vice President of Operations. In 2020, I, my beautiful wife, Michelle, and yes Levi, (our awesome Golden Retriever, who has his own Instagram Page: life_of_mr_levi), purchased Alliance Material Handling and allowed my wonderful partner to retire and do the things he had been dreaming about for a very long time with his wife and family.
As I think back to 1988 starting out in an automotive repair career, I am reminded that I didn’t get here on my own. Family, Friends, Customers and the people who work at this fine company have surrounded me and helped in Alliance’s success. Alliance continues to operate under a specific mission statement where relationships with customers, colleges, friends and family mean more than just doing business everyday.
