Founded in 1938 in a small garage in the tiny town of Huntley, Nebraska, Allmand Bros., Inc., now under the third generation of Allmand family leadership, celebrates 75 years in the manufacturing business. In the midst of the Great Depression and unable to afford a new arc welder for their repair shop, brothers Leslie and Walter Allmand built their own. It worked so well that their neighbors asked the brothers to build welders for them, and the business was born. From its modest inception in 1938, to the leadership position it has assumed in the intervening years, Allmand innovation is making worksites brighter, warmer, safer, and more productive.
Who We Are
Roger Allmand started out working on the floor, assembling the welders and eventually assembling light towers. He then went into sales for the next 50 years and eventually he became president of the company, and is now the Chairman of the Board.
Roger and his wife Marlis reside in Holdrege, Nebraska. They enjoy traveling and visiting their sons (Brad and Bart) and their grandkids.
