Alliance Machine approached Decklan Group wanting to expand their current building, nearly doubling the footprint to increase capacity.  Our firm steered AMI towards the city's Forgivable Loan Fund which unlocked $200,000 in fully forgivable financial incentives.  This huge expansion allowed the city to retain 36 aerospace and defense manufacturing jobs, while adding a minimum of 6 new positions over the next two years.  Along with the additional floor space, AMI funded the purchase of a new FMS cell to increase their capabilities and allow them to compete with third world manufacturing prices harnessing the power of automation.  Alliance Machine is also home to IPI Industries Midwest, and the parent company of GenXDirect.com.
