GVEC Economic Development - Local Workforce helps manufacturing company to grow in Seguin

 

Alamo Group (TX) Inc. is a manufacturing company, proudly based in Seguin, Texas. Since 1969, they have designed and manufactured industrial mowers used by governmental entities; cities, counties, states, federal and defense.  One of their specialties is to create concept designs with a customer who has a specific need. They then turn the concept into a functioning design, test and manufacture it - all from their Seguin location. This would not be possible without the talent, ingenuity and work ethic of their employees.

We wanted to learn more about the success they have had as an organization, the role their employees play in that success, and why they have chosen to grow in Seguin. Mary Andrews, Director of After Sales, Military Affairs & Community Development, sat down with us and gave us a glimpse at what makes Alamo so successful.


Q: How long have you been with Alamo?

A: I have been with the company since 2006 and have had the great opportunity to be a part of changing our culture to achieve our outstanding safety record.  I am also the Chairman of the Chamber Board and lead the collaboration between Alamo and SISD.

Q: Why do you feel Alamo is so successful?

A: Our ability to design, test, and manufacture industrial mowers within the U.S. is both unique and highly beneficial. We are a one-stop-shop for our customers and they depend on us to deliver high quality products every time.

Q: What role do your employees play in that?

A: The community is made up of great people who work hard and take pride in what they do.  This work ethic has translated into quality products and getting us to be a leader in our industry. We are looking to expand upon our International business as well as the Federal and Department of Defense segments. Our talented and dedicated employees make us well-positioned for growth.
