Al-jon Inc., located in Ottumwa, Iowa, has recently announced the opening of their new 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The expansion project was the primary motivation in creating an alliance between Republic Financial, a privately held company with investment interests in diverse assets and entities, and Al-jon, a leading manufacturer of equipment for the solid waste and scrap metal industries. The facility expansion will nearly double the space devoted to manufacturing.

“The completion of Al-jon’s nine-month plant expansion project ensures that Al-jon can supply the booming global scrap industry, and the international solid waste market, with the equipment it needs. It validates our commitment to the recycling and solid waste industries,” states Kendig Kneen, chief executive officer of Al-jon, Inc.

The plant expansion will support Al-jon’s range of products including the 580CL Car Logger a successful model with increased capacity and efficient processing speed, having the capacity of one-person operation and production capability of 25 car bodies per hour.
