News - Intro image
Founded in 1956 by Gilles Mailhot, ​Mailhot Industries is the result of a born inventor’s vision and his passion for machines, mechanics and hydraulics.

From Small Beginnings...

Our company has become a specialist in designing and manufacturing hydraulic solutions for our customers. In 1981, ​Mailhot Industries was sold to Yvan Morin, who opened offices in other Canadian provinces, the United States, and Mexico. Following Morin’s passing in 2011, Charles Massicotte became owner in 2016. Mailhot Industries now counts almost 325 employees, spread throughout our head office and our branches.


Seeing Further

Mailhot Industries’ mission is to create cutting-edge hydraulic solutions that improve the efficiency of our customers’ installations. The company strives to be a world-renowned innovator and supplier of high-performance hydraulic solutions. If ​Mailhot hydraulic cylinders can be found on thousands of refuse trucks in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, it’s thanks to years of research and collaboration with our customers.


Innovation and R&D

For more than fifty years, ​Mailhot​’s single stage and telescopic hydraulic cylinders have been synonymous with reliability, durability and longevity. Our R&D team—made up of engineers, technologists and designers who work in our own laboratory—is constantly researching innovations. Our salt bath nitriding process is unique in North America, and our hydraulic cylinders are not only the most reliable, but also the most hard-wearing.


Our partnership approach means our product designs are developed based on our customers’ needs and using groundbreaking technologies. Our hydraulic cylinder lines are tailored to the operating conditions of each market sector and their high quality means they can perform in extreme working conditions, including in the following areas of activity :

  • Waste collection

  • Trucks and trailers (tipping, vacuum and roll-off)

  • Stationary compactors

  • Snow removal equipment

  • Lifting equipment

  • Equipment for natural resource exploitation

  • Low-bed trailers

  • And more


At ​Mailhot Industries​, customer satisfaction is our priority!

From sales to after-sales, our experienced team is always available to​ ​assist our customers​ when choosing their products.
