The early 20th Century is full of amazing success stories. Stories of huge companies springing from humble origins, and people gaining huge amounts of wealth, fill the pages of the early 1900’s. One of these true American success stories is that of the Allen Bradley Company.

Allen-Bradley was founded in Dr. Stanton Allen and Lynde Bradley in 1903, with an initial investment of only $1,000. The company proceeded to survive through the great depression and boom during World War Two with its high quality industrial controls and electrical components. After that Allen-Bradley grew and advanced tremendously. In 1985 it was acquired by Rockwell International. Today Allen-Bradley is considered, by many, to be at the forefront of automation. Their control systems are viewed as the highest quality.

Allen-Bradley is one of many inspiring stories of companies which have grown into incredible examples of success. As previously mentioned Allen-Bradley started with an investment of only one-thousand dollars, by the time it was acquired by Rockwell International its sales were over one billion dollars a fiscal year.
