Get to know the Owners

Alan and Ashley of Begin Industries

Begin Industries is owned and operated by a husband and wife team, Alan Swenson and Ashley Begin, located in Minneapolis, MN.  Ashley works full-time on Begin Industries packing up products and designing new enamel pins.  Alan works during the day as an Audio Producer and Computer Programer and on nights and weekends finalizes the pin proofs, manages manufacturing, and makes listings.  We relocated from Washington, D.C. to Minneapolis, MN in 2019 and love the city.   We are passionate about spies, plants (especially succulents and cactus), good food and tasty brews. We enjoy making short videos for Instagram to showcase our Pins.

Please contact us with any questions or just to say Hi, we would love to hear form you.
