Alliance Laundry Systems Purchases former Manitowoc Crane Facility


Ripon-based Alliance Laundry Systems has closed on its purchase of the former Manitowoc Crane Company plant. The company said Tuesday that the 330-thousand square foot location will be used to help grow production at the Ripon facility. The move is expected to create 250 jobs in the Manitowoc area and re-open the now shuttered plant. In a news release, Alliance Laundry Systems CEO Mike Schoeb called the move a “win for Ripon, Manitowoc and Alliance Laundry Systems,” and added that “by shifting some functions to the new facility, we will be able to grow high-value production locally and increase the output of this factory with additional job creation in both communities.”

Work is expected to begin on the Manitowoc facility in early September. Alliance says the move is not intended to reduce positions in Ripon, as staff will be redeployed elsewhere in the facility.
