We believe in Community Service.

Culture & Community

We are aware of our social responsibility in the global marketplace we serve. We adhere to principals that protect the wellbeing of our employees and enable us to give back to the community.

The future of the communities where we live and work was important to founder George Strumbos and is very much still part of the company’s fabric.  What we do to help our youth today will have an impact on their success tomorrow. That is why we participate in National Manufacturing day where kids tour our facilities and learn about the possibilities of a career in manufacturing.

We also support our schools with Backpacks, Crayola Crayons, 3D printers and other needed materials, because we believe knowledge is power.  And our management and engineers are the biggest kids when we host the Co2 Car Races in our facility.

We salute our military and first responders who unselfishly put themselves in harm’s way, everyday so we can live and work safe.  We reach out to all generations of our community from our youth to our seniors. We are not only building a business in the community, we are very much part of it.

The AlphaUSA Book Club

Since July 2013,  Chuck Dardas, president and CEO of AlphaUSA, has been hosting book club groups at the Senior Center in Livonia. The club meets about six times a year to discuss the latest book Chuck buys for the entire group. What started out with a dozen readers is now up to more than 50 participants. In March of 2019, the group met to discuss a fictional book based on a true story that took place during the Holocaust. Lilac Girls was written by Martha Hall Kelly. Readers contributed their opinions about the book. Chuck also engaged the group in a discussion about history along with content about the book.

“I wasn’t sure I wanted to read it but I thought it was a good read especially for those who don’t believe that concentration camps existed,” said one woman with Polish and German heritage.

“I thought it was quite enlightening that it wasn’t just Jewish people murdered in the war; there were non-Jewish Polish people killed. I visited Auschwitz twice,” said a Polish American.

Suppliers dig deep efficiency

The family-owned supplier installed data collection terminals at its reorganized workstations late last year in an attempt to streamline production and find new ways to manage increased capacity without adding physical floor space or machines. The North American automotive industry is preparing for 32 new and remodeled vehicle launches in 2014. In response, the supply base is finding ways to collect and analyze “big data” to improve product planning, streamline development and meet the industry’s aggressive launch schedules over the next three years.
