In 1942 H. S. Meshorer, founder of Amalgamated Steel in Cleveland, Ohio introduced an innovative technique to rebuild worn crawler tracks. Grip-Lug ---a rolled steel bar---was welded to torn grousers which extended the life of the track. Re-grousing not only helped conserve steel, but the process also eliminated the need to replace track shoes.
From the Grip-Lug product Amalgamated Steel, which is now known as Allied Construction Products, LLC, grew from a small steel business into a leading manufacturer of attachments and other safety-enhancing, labor-saving equipment.
From that day forward, Allied always looked to have a 'first' in the construction market.
Allied developed the Roto-Cut in 1961, a high-speed rotary asphalt cutter, to give the edge for removing asphalt surfacing, trenching and patching jobs, edging, scoring and forming operations, utility line construction and other asphalt maintenance jobs.
In 1964, Allied introduced Tren-Shore, an aluminum shoring system resembling a ladder. It's used to hydraulically stabilize a trench.
In 1965, Allied developed and introduced the Ho-Pac, the first successful backhoe-mounted vibratory compactor/driver.
In 1966, the first commercially successful air hammer--- the Ho-Ram ---was introduced.
In 1968 Allied combined two good things --- Hydraulics and impact technology --- and introduced the first successful backhoe-mounted hydraulic impact hammer --- the Hy-Ram --- to the U.S. market.
1971 Pedestal Breaker System™
In 1971 the Allied Pedestal Breaker Systems include the positioning boom, hydraulic hammer, electric power unit and operator's control valve console was introduced.
1971 Hole Hog®
Always innovative and aggressive, Allied began marketing their Hole Hog, an underground piercing tool, in the U.S. in 1971. Pneumatically operated, the Hole Hog piercing tool travels underneath roads, walkways, lawns and driveways allowing them to remain undisturbed during utility or drainage pipe installation. Again, it was a first for the construction industry.
Allied has continued through the years to offer products by changing with the markets and meeting demands by supplying innovative and improved products.
