The Galia family made its first appearance on the truck trade market in 1965 under the direction of its founder Giuseppe Galia.
The company, in addition to the sale of heavy goods vehicles, specializes in the sale of used truck spare parts such as engines, gearboxes, differential gears, cabins and other parts. Today his son, Filippo Galia runs the business, flanked by his wife Mary Barbara. Filippo began taking his first steps in the workplace early, taking over the company's ownership from his father in 1981, where he had worked since he was a boy selling used vehicles.
In November 1993, he began to deal with the disposal of special waste from the demolition of heavy vehicles, creating a modern ecological scrapping centre, where today the plant has all requirements in accordance with current regulations. Under his leadership, the company further expanded in 2001, devoting itself to the construction and fitting of industrial vehicles as well as to the transformation of trucks, thus gaining a further portion of customers. Further input was given by the collaboration in administration from his wife Mary Barbara. Strong in experience and with a desire to grow professionally, the Galias established Galia's Industrial Vehicles in 2006, creating a new industrial bodywork and metallic carpentry company with state-of-the-art, technologically advanced machinery, offering a wide range of services for trucks, including:
