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.
