Alliance Rubber Company was recently awarded the 2012 “Excellence in Innovation Award” that pays tribute to manufacturing innovation development and implementation. This award was coordinated through the National Institute of Standards and Technology and was due in large part to the eight new products launched after attending the Innovation Jump Start program provided by AMS. One such product was an innovation they call FotoFlex, which is a new capability to add four color digital imprints to rubber wristbands for promotions.
“Alliance is a clear example to us of what it takes for a company to succeed in a globally competitive market”, says Dan Curtis, director of Arkansas Manufacturing Solutions (AMS). “There will always be someone willing to produce a product for a penny less. Alliance instead builds their business on being constantly innovative. They set an example for how manufacturing can succeed in America.”
