Allegis Corporation marks 50 years in business


Allegis Corporation (Minneapolis, Minnesota) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a new logo and a continued commitment to its original values. Allegis is a supplier of access hardware components, including handles, latches, hinges, sealing profiles and gas springs.  Founded in 1969, the company has taken its role as a supply partner a step further by tapping into its engineering expertise, industry knowledge, and production capabilities to create custom engineered parts for its customers.

In the words of CEO Clayton Keister, “We’ve learned that to win in this business, it’s not the hardware components themselves that our customers want, it’s the thinking of our designers, our engineers and our industry experts. It’s that deep understanding of how to best combine access hardware to create something even better. It’s kind of a like an equation 1 + 1 equals 5.  Over time, we realized that no one knows more about how to combine all of the right components — handles, latches, hinges, gaskets or gas springs -- to enhance ease of access, ensure security, and improve efficiency, than our people. It’s our unique way of thinking. That’s our number one strength.”

Allegis has ten facilities in North America, and a strategic, global approach to sourcing.  This supports the company’s core business of access hardware supply and custom design to ultimately solve problems for the customer.  These are supported by Allegis’ supply chain services, which take into account the customer’s production needs to lower total costs, avoid lead times, and streamline planning.
