Our History

In 1952, Jerry Mandel founded Jerry Mandel Machinery after years of working in a family scrap processing business. In 1971, Alan Ross joined Jerry's company, and together they helped a nascent recycling industry transform and grow into one of the world's largest and most essential industries. After Jerry's retirement in 1979, Alan continued his service to the recycling industry as Alan Ross Machinery. Today, Alan's son Rustin and a team of dedicated professionals continue Jerry's legacy of service to the industries we serve.
