GAL Manufacturing Expands With Addition of Sacramento, California Division

GAL Manufacturing, a leading North American designer, manufacturer and distributor of elevator components and systems, and a portfolio company of Golden Gate Capital, is expanding its operations with the acquisition of Elevator Controls Corporation of Sacramento, California.

Elevator Controls was established in 1986 by brothers Fernando and Francisco Ortiz, who will continue to lead the division that will remain headquartered in Sacramento, officials said.

Fernando Ortiz, President of Elevator Controls, said, “Joining the GAL group is a truly exciting step for Elevator Controls. Our controller packages are complementary to GAL’s extensive product offerings, and we can now provide our customers with a wider range of solutions.”

Francisco Ortiz, Vice President, Product Engineering & Support at Elevator Controls, added, “We are pleased to be able to support our customers with more products integrated for maximum installation and service efficiency, and leverage our respective footprints to offer superior technical support for the combined company’s range of controllers throughout the western United States.”

Mark Boelhouwer, President & CEO of GAL, said, “Elevator Controls is an important addition to GAL’s group of companies. They bring a superb range of products, services and design expertise that will add significant value to our business. With our teams working in unison, we will provide continued expansion of our product and service offerings across North America.”

“We look forward to working with Fernando and Francisco as they assist in developing our controller product portfolio, and together, we will deliver increased value to our customers,” he added.
