Mississauga, ON — Effective January 27, 2006, Del-Tech Automation of Prince George, B.C., was acquired by Wainbee Limited, a distributor of fluid power and automation components and systems. As a result of this acquisition, Wainbee, which is headquartered in Mississauga, Ont., now has 16 locations coast-to-coast, servicing customers from Vancouver to Halifax.

“Wainbee’s existing line-up of hydraulic, pneumatic, industrial tool, electrical motion and filtration products and services complement Del-Tech’s very well,” says Rodger. “Our goal is to continue to provide the high level of customer service and product expertise that Del-Tech’s customers have come to expect while adding additional products and services through Wainbee.”
