Aviation pioneer A. L. Patterson founded the company in 1930 under the name China Airmotive Co., Fed., Inc. USA to export aircraft equipment to Asia. He changed the name to Allied International Co. Fed. Inc. USA in 1947. The present name was adopted in 1951.
Allied International expanded its operations in Europe in 1960 by acquiring A. E. Ulmann Associates Ltd., focused on European markets, which acted as U.S. purchasing agents for Lufthansa and Alitalia airlines. After the merger, Alec Ulmann, Sr. took over as President of Allied International, bringing to the company his extensive experience in the aeronautical industry, both as an engineer and as an entrepreneur.Born in Russia in 1903, Alec Ulmann Sr., graduated from M.I.T. with his M.S. in Aeronautical Engineering in 1928. In the 1930’s he flew around Europe in his 120h.p. Kinner-Winkle Bird while working for Goodyear, Dewy Almy Chemical, and Aviquipo , ground zero for the American aviation export business.
For racing enthusiasts Alec Ulmann Sr was also famous for having started the Sebring !2 Hour Grand Prix which brought European teams like Maserati, Ferrari and Jaguar and European drivers like Fangio and Stirling Moss to the US for the first time after WWII. If you enjoyed the movie Ford VS Ferrari you may also like this story of the Cadillac entry at Le Mans in 1950 which featured Alec Ulmann as Team Manager for the American team entered by Briggs Cunningham. For old car enthusiasts he was equally well known as an automotive historian writing for the Bulb Horn and Automotive Quarterly and a collector of Bugatti and Hispano Suiza automobiles. The Pebble Beach Concours awards the Alec Ulmann Trophy in his honor to the best Hispano on display
As a family owned business since 1960, Allied International has always been and will continue to be known for its reputation for successfully developing markets for our principals through an honest and transparent approach that always puts the customer first.
Allied International’s approach has always been to sell superior products to customer engineers based on technical benefits for the customer. Over the years Allied has relied on engineers to guide our sales teams. Our in depth knowledge of the products we sell enables us to go beyond mere order taking to assist our customers in finding the best technical and commercial solutions to their problems.
While websites, cell phones and email make international communication easier than it was back in the days of letters and telexes and it seems everybody speaks English we still believe the most effective sales are done by Spaniards in Spain, Frenchmen in France, Japanese in Japan and so on in in the local language. We have a global network of sales representatives and partners, some of whom are new and some of whom we have been teaming with since the 1950s.
