Planned shut-down

Posted Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019 in Company News

Polar vortex – weather closure 1/30/2019

Posted Tuesday, January 29th, 2019 in Company News

We are projected to be greater than 50 below zero most of the day tomorrow. We know that most of our people would brave any weather to be here but we are concerned about them getting HOME safely after their cars sit out in the cold all day.  Out of an abundance of caution we have decided we will be closed Wednesday, January 30th. We are sorry for the inconvenience to our customers but we need to take care of our people! Stay warm everyone!



Inventory closure & holiday hours …

Posted Thursday, November 29th, 2018 in Company News

The last day to order a plated part and have it shipped before Christmas is Tuesday, December 11th.

The last day to order for shipment before Christmas is before noon on Tuesday, December 18th.

We will be closed for inventory beginning Wednesday, December 19th and not reopening until Wednesday, December 26th. Orders (with no plating) received before noon on Friday, December 28th will ship and invoice in 2018.  Our technician support is also disrupted during the holidays as Craig and Beth, two of our most experienced and valued employees take holidays that overlap a bit – they deserve it!! Please get your technical questions in before Christmas or you may wait to have it answered until January.

We will be closed to celebrate the New Year on Monday, December 31st and Tuesday, January 1st, reopening at 8 am on Wednesday, January 2nd.

Please keep these dates and holiday hours in mind as you prepare to close up your year.  Always good to remember that shipping times vary wildly during the month of December as well.  If you absolutely need a part please consider paying for expedited shipping and handling … the one to two-day shipping average cannot be counted on during the e-commerce shopping season.

As always, everyone at Allied wishes you a safe and blessed holiday season!

 



Getzen family in the news

Posted Wednesday, November 28th, 2018 in Company News

A heartwarming story of a stolen Getzen trumpet … check it out here.  All of us at Allied are very proud to work for the Getzen family!  And, if any of our customers see the original B flat Getzen P18562 come through your shop let’s try to make sure it makes it home to SSgt. Matt Miller for Christmas.



Price list tip …

Posted Wednesday, July 18th, 2018 in Company News

We’ve heard some grumbling (okay, maybe it was just people around here) that you can’t tell last year’s price list from this year’s.  Our printer loved the snazzy layout from last year so much they actually asked us to stick with it “instead of the boring old one”.  Our Price Lists do always have dates on them, in the upper right under our name.  Another tell is the 50th anniversary seal in the upper left of the 2017 version, circled above, is not on the new 2018 version.  We hope that helps!  And no, we still haven’t identified the horn in the picture!



Allied Supply 2018 catalog is in the mail (finally!)

Posted Monday, July 16th, 2018 in Company News

The updated 2018 Allied Supply catalog and 2018 price list are in the mail as of last week.  We have reports that some are landing in mailboxes!  If you do not receive your catalog and price book (or receive one and not the other) within the next four weeks please let us know and we will send one with your next order.  The online version of the catalog is not quite ready to go but you should see that within the next week or so.

Posted Wednesday, June 27th, 2018 in Company News
