Since 2006, ALCOM LLC has produced the most diverse, highest quality aluminum trailer line in the industry. With operations based in Winslow, Maine, the company has grown from a staff of 3 full-time employees, working from a 10,000 square foot facility, to a team of more than 500 dedicated craftsmen, sales associates and office personnel. In February of 2010, doors opened on ALCOM's state-of-the-art, 70,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, optimized for modern aluminum trailer production. At present, we serve more than 500 dealerships in 51 States and Provinces, China, India and Kuwait.
ALCOM's storied growth has been attained through a commitment to providing our dealer network with the top quality aluminum trailer products, in a product line that truly caters to individual market areas. We recognize that snowmobile trailers don't sell in Arizona and, likewise, you won't see open motorcycle trailers flying off the lot in Alaska. Our product line directly addresses that concept. Manufacturing 160+ standard trailer models, we're able to customize a lineup of open and enclosed units that addresses the dealer's exact needs, based on region, budget and localized competition.
Among the key contributors to our broad product offering is our ability to consistently evaluate each product line, in terms of relevance and quality. We work diligently to improve on existing models, whenever possible, and develop new lines that "fill-in the gaps" that occur in an ever-evolving market.
Another driving force behind ALCOM's success is our commitment to quick manufacturing turnaround times. As of late-spring, we now operate 7 days a week, maximizing our output efficiency. As a result, we have been able to reduce lead-times that were already among the best in the industry. Keeping a keen eye towards company growth, ALCOM has prospered through a down-trending economy. In terms of stability, we are as strong as they come.
Perhaps the most noteworthy aspect of ALCOM's business approach is our steadfast commitment to customer service. We wholeheartedly believe that we provide the best. At ALCOM, "customer service" extends beyond answering phone calls or employing a massive road sales force. It is our mission to keep our dealers informed, while providing a quality product that attracts buyers and ultimately adds to our dealers' bottom lines. From the components used to build our products, to the skilled craftsmen that we employ, to our service before, during and after the sale, ALCOM's dealers are our number one priority and that notion is reflected in every aspect of our business.
