Rockwell Automation and the Allen-Bradley brand represents a deep history of product innovation and customer service. The evolution began with milestones that began their long history. In 1903 Lynde Bradley and Dr. Stanton Allen form the Compression Rheostat Company with an initial investment of $1,000. In the following year, one of the first commercially manufactured Allen-Bradley brand of crane controllers is shipped for exhibition at the St. Louis World's Fair.

Compression Rheostat Company renamed Allen-Bradley Company and moved to Milwaukee in 1909, and Dr. Allen appointed president, Lynde Bradley, vice president and treasurer, with Harry Bradley acting secretary and superintendent of Allen-Bradley.

In 1914 Allen-Bradley opened its first sales office in New York, and in 1915 Allen-Bradley sales reach $86,000. Dr. Stanton Allen passes away in 1916 and in 1917 Allen-Bradley sales grow to $404,683. Then in 1920, the "Bradleystat" (a rheostat for use in automobile dashboards and radios) is first offered. Click the logo below to lean more of this company's history.
