GAL Aerospace was founded in 2011 when it purchased the assets of an aviation cabinetry shop in Quebec and incorporated the subsidiary company as GAL Aviation Ltd. The business commenced operations with three activities for VVIP business aircraft including aircraft cabinetry, small machined and sheet metal parts, and a technical staffing service providing entry into service and field support for commercial and regional aircraft around the globe.
In 2013, technical staffing was spun off as GAL AeroStaff Ltd. to facilitate independent leadership with an independent mandate to maximize its own potential. In 2014, GAL purchased AeroQuest Inc. to establish itself in the USA market, add composites capability, and gain privileged access into an established customer base dating back to AeroQuest’s origin in 1995. In 2016, the assets of Avmax Executive Interiors were acquired, and the two manufacturing operations were consolidated in Vaudreuil-Dorion, slightly west of Montreal. In 2017, GAL added design engineering to its scope when the company hired its engineering manager and established the department in Bogota, Colombia. 2017 was also the year that GAL began its strategic move into commercial aircraft interiors.
Today, GAL Aerospace is a vertically integrated solution provider offering complete design-build-certify services for business and commercial aviation. Our products and services cover the entire passenger cabin interior, with the exception of seats and in-flight entertainment systems, and our staffing operation continues to provide technical services and general staffing services to aerospace companies around the globe.
