Alvan President and CEO President and CEO James Van Zoeren indicated that the 87 day strike at American Axle, one of Alvan's top customers, was deadly. "The American Axle strike is absolutely killing us because of the trickle-down effect with the closure of General Motors plants and how that impacts our customers who are first- and second-tier auto-parts suppliers," Van Zoeren said.

However, it was clear that there were a number of other forces at work that contributed to the closure of these two companies. "Alvan was quickly becoming a dinosaur. Our ability to compete with much larger carriers than ourselves was becoming compromised. Our costs were higher and we were struggling to keep up on a technological basis," said Van Zoeren.

"We're in meetings with the workers."

The 67-year-old company was founded in Kalamazoo by the family of James Van Zoeren, president and chief executive officer.

No one answered the phones this morning at Alvan, 3600 Alvan Road in Kalamazoo.
A recording said the number listed for Van Zoeren's home has been disconnected.

In the company press release, Van Zoeren said he was trying to sell the business.

Van Zoeren told the Kalamazoo Gazette in May that American Axle, which was on strike 87 days, was one of the company's biggest customers.

"The American Axle strike is absolutely killing us because of the trickle-down effect with the closure of General Motors plants and how that impacts our customers who are first- and second-tier auto-parts suppliers," Van Zoeren said.
