In 1967 Walker Panels was created with our sister company, Walker's Electric.
Originally located at 889 King Street Midland, our customers included RCA Midland, TRW Midland, and Arthur S. Leitch Company. We made thousands of simple Pump Alternating Starters and Inline Oven Burner control panels.
In 1993 the move was made to our current location of 169 Bay Street, Midland. The building was completely renovated to house both companies of Walker's Electric and Walker Panels.
Our long history has allowed us to witness many changes in the industry. From the grassroots of starter panels to the beginnings of Program Logic Controller design, to todays fast paced Automation Systems.
One very important aspect of our company is a commitment to a Family-Owned structure. Today we remain under 3rd generation, Glenn Walker's ownership and guidance.
Today Walker Panels continues to grow as a fully independent company a division of 1350223 Ontario Inc.
