ALPHA INDUSTRIES HISTORY

Alpha Industries, Inc. was incorporated in Knoxville, TN on October 17, 1959. With the suspension of his previous business partner, Robert Lane, Samuel Gelber instead enlisted the help of Herman “Breezy” Wynn to help set up his new company. Wynn was a well-known Knoxville apparel manufacturer with many years of experience working with the government. With Wynn’s extensive connections to other small government contractors in the Knoxville area, he was an ideal partner for Gelber and helped ensure Alpha Industries’ initial survival.

In November 1959, Wynn helped Alpha take over the sublease on a small factory space on 11th Street in downtown Knoxville from the Levi Strauss Company, a space which had been previously used by Dobbs Industries. After Wynn helped Gelber arrange for the lease of sewing equipment and skilled operators, Alpha Industries was ready to begin production. While Samuel Gelber began to bid on Department of Defense contracts for Alpha, Wynn arranged a subcontracting agreement to manufacture the MA-1 flight jacket so that Alpha’s 35 employees would have immediate work. It was only two months later, in December 1959, that Alpha Industries received its first Department of Defense contracts.
