“You simply can't build a company like ours without the integrity, work ethic, and knowledge of experienced people. We are very fortunate to have team members who have been with us for over a generation.” Robert Kahn, CEO

Reliable is a successful family business. Founded in 1955 by the father of the current CEO, Reliable has grown from a small provider of sewing machines to an industry leader serving several markets. The firm’s extensive line of sewing and fabric care products are used in the garment industry, the alteration sector, in drapery workrooms, and in other markets. Its professional steam cleaning products are used in dentist offices, jewelry stores, hospitals, restaurants, and other commercial applications. Reliable also offers steam cleaners for home use—a fast-growing market, since steam sterilizes without the use of chemicals.

From its earliest days, Reliable has been known for its customer focus, consistently providing both high-quality products and first-class customer service. Reliable has a long history of product innovation. Its steam cleaners, irons, and sewing machines use innovative technology to provide better reliability and performance than those of the competition. Reliable’s Sewquiet servomotor for industrial sewing machines has set a new standard in the industry.

Over fifty years have passed since Milton Kahn founded what is today Reliable Corporation, and the company has come a long way from its modest beginnings of selling used sewing equipment out of a garage. Reliable is now located in a modern 20,000 square foot facility, and its products are available online, in catalogs, and from resellers across North America, Asia, and Europe.
