Our Story


Alvarado was founded in 1956 by William T. Alvarado, who started the company to sell checkstand lights, railing and turnstile products to Southern California grocery chains. The company was purchased by the current owners in the 1970s and since that time Alvarado has remained privately held and family owned. Today, Alvarado specializes in products and solutions that protect assets and control the flow of people, selling its products and solutions to a wide range of customers worldwide.
