Founded as a one-man machine shop in a Canadian basement in 1964, Linamar has grown into a supplier for vehicle and mobile industrial equipment markets worldwide, with more than 12,700 employees and sales of $2.2 billion CAD in 2010. The organization includes 39 manufacturing facilities, five research and development centers, and 14 sales offices spanning 11 countries. Linamar’s operations are separated into four functions including Industrial, Commercial, and Energy (ICE), Manufacturing, Driveline Systems, and Skyjack.
