A Rich History

The history of Louis Allis began in 1901 with the investment of a Milwaukee businessman in the small D.C. Motor manufacturing firm, The Mechanical Appliance Company. After increasing employment by nearly six times in the first five years of business, the firm began expanding beyond the D.C. world. The firm moved out of its original facility in a small shoe factory to its historic East Stewart Street property in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where in 1922 the manufacturer officially changed its name to The Louis Allis Company. Louis Allis quickly became an innovator and market leader in the design and manufacture of specialty A.C. Electric Motors. Louis Allis was able to revolutionize many mechanical processes of the day, creating safer and more efficient machines that utilized Louis Allis products. Many of the industries that Louis Allis made great innovations in early on are some of the same industries we still serve today.
