Advantage Converting History
Way back in 1963, Leo Alchimisti founded Advance Electric, our predecessor, who designed and developed customer slitting techniques to serve the Bay Area in the Industrial and Electrical industries. Over the next 30 years, the Advance Electric team grew their knowledge, skills, and capabilities, eventually leading Leo’s sons Paul and Jerry to create Advantage Converting in 1992.
Along with master converter Richard Lavino, the Alchimisti brothers saw an opportunity to serve the growing tech hub in Silicon Valley with unmatched skill and customer service. Specializing in close tolerance slitting and die cutting, they branched out into the aerospace and medical device industries across the Bay Area.
Since then, Advantage Converting has grown in size and capabilities. We now serve businesses all over the world, but we’ve remained true to our original vision—to serve with incomparable technical ability and unequaled customer service.
We look forward to the future. We’re excited to continue to grow and develop in this dynamic, ever-changing world. And we look forward to working with you.
