They have over 35 years of experience providing a select line of products including pneumatic & hydraulic, valve automation, controls, robotics and structural framing systems for manufacturing.

They began as a supplier and manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders and power units and now include the distribution of pneumatic components (the largest and oldest stocking SMC distributor in Western Canada), aluminum structural framing and automation systems, and valve automation.
