AEC Factory and Headquarters in Paragould, Arkansas
THE HERITAGE OF ALLEN ENGINEERING
Allen Engineering Corp. (AEC) was founded in 1964 by Dewayne and Mary Ann Allen in Piggott, Arkansas as a Ready Mix Concrete Operation.
The company evolved and changed from a Ready Mix and Aggregate Producer (with six locations in Arkansas and Missouri) to a Concrete Pumping operation and eventually into a Concrete Contractor.
In 1977, Dewayne manufactured Allen’s first piece of concrete equipment, the Razorback® Truss Screed, in an old Truck Repair Shop in Paragould, Arkansas.
Today, AEC is a designer, manufacturer, distributor, and marketer of the Allen® line of Concrete and Related Equipment that is sold across the country and around the world.
Over Fifty Years later, AEC is still a Family Owned and Operated, Arkansas Based Business with Jay Allen (President and second generation) running the daily operations. Dewayne and Mary Ann Allen still serve on the company’s Board of Directors offering guidance and over-sight.
The Allen product line represents a complete system for the site-prep, placing, finishing, and paving of all types of concrete.
The majority of Allen Equipment is manufactured in the company’s 173K square foot manufacturing and distribution facility located in Paragould.
The factory occupies the same site on Fifth Street as the ready mix concrete operation that Dewayne Allen purchased in 1968.
Allen Engineering is a fully integrated equipment designer and manufacturer. Our in-house operations include equipment design, engineering, prototyping, testing, CNC machining, metal fabrication, laser metal cutting, welding, powder coat painting, assembly, warehousing, and distribution.
AEC employs a sales and marketing team that includes a full-time, job-site focused sales force and well as a network of independent sales representative agencies. Allen Concrete Equipment is sold and rented worldwide in over 90 countries through a network of concrete-focused dealers, rental centers, and distributors.
We design, manufacture, and assemble each piece of Allen Equipment to be “Contractor Tough” so it can stand up to the most challenging job-site conditions created by concrete contractors.
Allen Engineering has maintained a leading role in the evolution of high tolerance concrete floors (measured by F Numbers) around the world. Allen Engineering was the first company to put Floating Discs (Pans) under a Ride-On Power Trowel which led to a significant improvement in concrete floor flatness. Today, Allen counts many of the major concrete contractors from around the world as satisfied owners of Allen Equipment.
