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 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, our team of dedicated professionals continue Jerry and Alan's legacy of service to the recycling industry.
