Linamar Corporation is an advanced manufacturing company where the intersection of leading-edge technology and deep manufacturing expertise is creating solutions that power vehicles, motion, work and lives for the future.

The Company 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 the newly formed Linamar Agriculture operating group which consists of the MacDon, Salford and Bourgault brands.

Skyjack manufactures scissors, boom and telehandler lifts for the aerial work platform industry.

Within the Agriculture portfolio MacDon manufactures combine draper headers and self-propelled windrowers for harvesting, Salford supplies farm tillage and crop fertilizer application equipment while Bourgault is a leader in air seeding technology.

The Mobility segment is focused on propulsion systems, structural and chassis systems, energy storage and power generation for both the global electrified and traditionally powered vehicle markets.

Operationally, Mobility is organized into three regional groups North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the new Linamar Structures product group.

The Regional Mobility groups are vertically integrated operations combining expertise in light metal casting, forging, machining and assembly.

The Linamar Structures Group offers competitive lightweight innovations for safety-critical components and systems for the global mobility market. Design, development, and testing services for the Mobility segment are provided both by McLaren Engineering and for electrified solutions, the eLIN Product Solutions Group.

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.
