Topic: Walinga

Remember your great grandfather’s tool shed? Wooden walls and a worn peg board where he thoughtfully arranged his tools. Tools that were handed down from your grandfather’s father, to your grandfather and so on until they found their way to you. These tools never needed replacing, there’s no built in obsolescence, they aren’t headed for the trash. They were manufactured to work hard and to last for generations.

Walinga bulk transportation equipment is built to last. Equipment designed for a hard day’s work, day in, day out, equipment that reliably shows up ready for work. No one is sure where the oldest hard working Walinga product is, but we know it’s had generations at its controls. It will be a simpler machine, it might show a few dings, some scuffs and time under a hot sun may see it a little faded. But know that when the latest generation walks up to a maintained Walinga product, it’s the farmhand they can trust.

Walinga was awarded the APICS Ontario Grand Valley Company of the Year Award in the 2017 APICS OGV Awards Banquet. Join us in this meeting to learn more about this exciting manufacturing facility!
