Who is Alma Anyway?

Alma Walters, mother of Jim Walters, and mother-in-law of Ken King, says… “In 1969 my husband Harry (Bucky) Walters, decided to incorporate. Tired of being listed last in the Detroit Yellow Pages, he gambled… on changing the name from Walters Supply Company (founded in 1948) to the present day Alma Machinery Company, Inc. That put us first in the phone book, and hopefully we’re first in your book.”

Trust and Value

Trust and value are most important when shopping for used equipment, especially when dealing with used presses.
30 Day Guarantee (MDNA return privilege)
You’ll never find these two words, Reconditioned and Guaranteed, in any auction brochure or e-commerce listing…nor do they mention services like “F.O.B.”, “Under Power” or “Terms”. Instead they use terms like “As-Is”, “Where-Is” and not to mention “Buyers Premium.”
