Alvin Industries is a collaboration between Alex Moreland and Kevin O'Reilly (ALex + keVIN = ALVIN). It was started in the Cherrywood neighborhood of East Austin in early 2013. Alex and Kevin both grew up in Central Texas. After graduating high school they each ventured north to pursue their education, Kevin to Boston University and Alex to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC. After extensive living, studying and traveling abroad, both Alex and Kevin returned to their home state of Texas in 2012. They met in Austin in late 2012 and quickly discovered they both shared a passion for design and fabrication. They love everything wood and believe wood should be on everything.
