It happens all the time … had a call from a customer yesterday, they were looking for a particular part but had been told by the manufacturer that it was obsolete – yet we still listed it in our catalog … how could that be?  We have roughly 14,000 unique parts in our inventory and we keep a sample of almost every one of them on the chance that some day we will need it for a prototype.  We aren’t going to make just one of some obscure part for a one of a kind horn, but if our customers need something and there is a demand they can count on us to get the job done because that is what we are here to do.  So, when you hear “obsolete” don’t be afraid to ask if there is a chance it will rise from the dead as an Allied part.  (And that is our Halloween hook!  ;))
