Power to perform

Linamar Corporation is made up of two operating segments – the Industrial segment and the Mobility segment, both global leaders in manufacturing solutions and world-class developers of highly engineered products.

The Industrial segment is comprised of Skyjack and MacDon. Skyjack manufactures scissor, boom and telehandler lifts for the aerial work platform industry. MacDon manufactures combine draper headers and self-propelled windrowers for the agricultural harvesting industry.

The Mobility segment is subdivided into three regional groups: North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Within the Mobility segment, the regional groups are vertically integrated operations combining expertise in light metal casting, forging, machining and assembly for both the global electrified and traditionally powered vehicle markets.

The Mobility segment products are focused on both components and systems for new energy powertrains, body and chassis, driveline, engine and transmission systems of these vehicles. In addition to the recently formed eLIN Product Solutions Group that focuses on Electrification, McLaren Engineering provides design, development, and testing services for the Mobility segment.

Stepping stool

Here, at Linamar Corporation, we have established a culture that thrives on an entrepreneurial spirit of success, results, and opportunity.

At the core of Linamar’s operations is the Stepping Stool. An analogy that signifies a three-legged stool. Each leg represents one piece of our stakeholders, Customer, Employee, and Financial, who each have a vested interest in the company’s long-term success. 

If not in balance at all times, the 3-legged stool is unstable and will eventually fall over. Linamar’s Stepping Stool is focused on maintaining this balance. A business approach that ensures all stakeholders’ success.

The Stepping Stool Strategy drives our focus on decision-making and management practices that provide the most benefit to all of our key stakeholders and operational performance across the entire global organization.
