Since 1955, Galtech SPA Italy design and manufacture hydraulic components. At first, the growing demand for quality product helped the introduction of those components in Canada. Galtech components became available to all of North America by the end of the 90’s.

In 2005, Galtech SPA bought 100% of the existing Canadian distributor and took over the importing and distribution operations in North America.

Early 2008, the name Galtech Canada became official in order to display the link with Galtech Italy. At the same time, a new business management plan was implanted with the arrival of M. Maurice Malo as general manager.

Asides from being the North America logistics hub for Galtech Italy, Galtech Canada imports hydraulic components from other Italian manufacturers. We also actively source out North American suppliers of components needed to complement our pumps and valves offering.

Thru knowledgeable, well trained and able employees, Galtech Canada offers professional and timely service. In this day and age, quick turnaround is often what contributes to the feasibility of any company. In order to help our customers, we do our best to keep deliveries as quick as possible by maintaining well stocked shelves.
