Since 1979, Malley Industries has provided vehicle and component solutions to organizations and individuals that carry special commodities, whether transporting equipment, cargo or people. Malley Industries has earned a reputation for the quality of its ambulances, security and prisoner transportation, and specialized commercial vehicle up-fitting. The company is one of Canada’s largest adaptive mobility manufacturers, specializing in para transit vehicles on a variety of vehicle platforms and lowered floor conversions on the new Ford Transit Connect van for taxis and personal use.
Our Plastics division has been quick to respond to the introduction of new van platforms by designing and manufacturing rugged vehicle liner kits for many of the new OEM offerings. In addition to products for the automotive sector, this division provides innovative engineered designs, mould and component manufacturing, plastics processing and assembled solutions to the industrial, aerospace and food sector throughout North America.
With distribution throughout North America and growing markets world-wide, Malley Industries consolidated its operations in late 2010 when it moved to a newly-constructed, 90,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant with access to air, rail and highway links. Malley Industries Inc. employs skilled professionals and custom fabricators in six key areas; design engineering, metal fabrication & automotive paint, woodworking & assembly, thermo vacuum formed plastics, vehicle electronics and automotive upholstery.
Malley Industries began as a family business in 1979, but its roots actually go back many years before that. Company founder, the late A.J. Malley, was an entrepreneur at heart. He always had some kind of business venture on the go while working for the railroad.
A family vacation to Expo ’67 in Montreal found the family of four in less than desirable accommodations. Upon arriving back home, A.J. designed and built a truck camper in his basement. When spring came, he and his young son, Terry, had to dismantle the whole project to get it out of the house and then re-assembled it outside.
The first camper was eventually sold and another was built. Before long, there were orders for one after another. For many years, the business operated in a part time capacity out of a 24 x 44 foot garage in the family’s back yard.
In 1979, A.J., his wife Maudie, and son, Terry opened a small manufacturing facility in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, focusing on building truck caps, campers and doing van conversions for the recreational market.
Since then, the company has grown and broadened its scope of capabilities to include the manufacture of ambulances and other emergency vehicles, law enforcement and commercial vehicles, conversions for persons with physical challenges, design engineering and plastics manufacturing.
