Aligning Technology, People and Innovation for Real World Solutions

In 1976, with the SMT market on the rise, two new manufacturing representative firms were founded in Northern Ohio to serve Ohio and the surrounding states. KDF Company and WRR Associates were founded by Don Keller and Bill Rittman. Both companies were founded on the concept of providing the best available solutions to their customers and the best available coverage to their principals.

Midwest Manufacturing Industry services and productsNearly three decades later, in 2005, WRR Associates joined KDF Company and formed Aligned Solutions, Inc. Aligned Solutions, Inc has carried on the dedication to bring the best available solutions to our customers and provide the best available coverage to our principals.

In 2011 we began our next phase of expansion and association with more outstanding representation firms. Greg Fall from Host Industrial Services, Inc. began an affiliation followed by Eric Turner from Productive Manufacturing Ideas and Harley Cole from Tool Technology.

At the beginning of the 2nd quarter of 2012 we again expanded our association to include Mark Lindahl of Micro Products Sales, Inc. in the Chicago area.

Every year we look to continue the great tradition that has been passed down. We are proud of the reputation and history of KDF Company, WRR Associates, Host Industrial Services, Inc., Productive Manufacturing Ideas, Tool Technology and Micro Product Sales, Inc. We look to continuing this great tradition as we strive to serve our customers and principals with excellent products and services.

In almost four decades industry in the Midwest has changed along with the landscape of manufacturing. This has created a different climate in how manufacturing works and how to best support industry, not to mention how to be a successful Rep firm.

Today we cover a large portion of the greater Midwest, call on multiple industries and offer more service related solutions. This diversity has helped us to bring a wide range of products, materials and capabilities to the table to better serve our customers, our principals and our markets.

We are looking forward to being part of your success story!
