Alliant Healthcare Products is a company on the rise, literally. Six weeks ago, Alliant relocated its headquarters in downtown Grand Rapids from the second story of an office building on the 300 block of Ionia Ave to the 11th floor of Bridgewater Place at 333 Bridge Street NW. In the move, the company added 50 percent additional office space with $90,000 of renovations opening the office to views of the North and East sides of Grand Rapids overlooking the Grand River.
“There are veterans who have sacrificed far more than me. I’m not doing this just for my own benefit. I’m hiring and rewarding other veterans too. Right now, veterans make up 30 percent of my staff and make up the majority of my senior management team.”
Over the last five years, Alliant Healthcare Products has sold over $275,000,000 of cutting edge medical capital equipment and surgical devices into almost every hospital of the Veteran’s Administration and the Department of Defense throughout the world. The company is a verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business that helps other companies navigate the complex acquisition environment of the federal government.
Bob Taylor, owner and former B-52 navigator who served in the first Gulf War jokes, “Sometimes, it might have been easier flying combat missions and taking ground fire over Iraq than navigating federal procurement rules.” On a serious note he adds, “There are veterans who have sacrificed far more than me. I’m not doing this just for my own benefit. I’m hiring and rewarding other veterans too. Right now, veterans make up 30 percent of my staff and make up the majority of my senior management team.”
Don Tuitel, a former rescue swimmer in the U.S. Navy, serves as the company’s Director of Business Development. Director of Quality and Regulatory, Becky Hudson, graduated from the Coast Guard Academy. Becky served as an officer and was responsible for shore operations in support of Search and Rescue, and Homeland Security . “These are no underachievers,” says Taylor. “They know hard work, leadership, dedication, teamwork, and how to get the job done. What else can any company ask for in an employee?”
