Matt Manley, Fabrication Manager, started at Allen Engineering Corp. (AEC) on April 16, 1985. That’s right – 1985!
Born in Michigan, Matt moved with his family when he was three to Paragould, AR. With a cousin and a few friends working at AEC, Matt joined the team in the fabrication department – a department he has not left in 30 years. After paying his dues, Matt was promoted to manager of the fabrication department in 1996. Outside of the Allen family, Matt is the second-longest tenured employee at AEC. On what has kept him around for 30 years, Matt says it’s the “Family Owned” atmosphere. “I’ve worked for other companies and it just doesn’t feel the same”, Matt says. Matt has one daughter, Nicole, and two grandsons, Trip and Owen. Matt, thanks for your hard work and dedication over the years to making AEC a premier concrete equipment manufacturer!
