In 1976, AutoLine moved into a new 30,000 square-foot building adjacent to the company’s original 5,000 square-foot building it had occupied since 1967 when the company was incorporated.
Autoline Products in Winnipeg is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
In the early 1960s, a group of individuals worked the remanufacturing and aftermarket business, said Greg Sulyma, Autoline’s general manager. They “felt there was a demand for an exchange program for remanufactured carburetors, ignition distributors and water pumps.”
And in 1967, Autoline was born. “The operation was moved from a small repair facility to a 5,000 square-foot building,” Sulyma said.
In the ’70s, Autoline added remanufactured water pumps to its lineup. That meant a larger facility was also needed. In 1976, the company moved into a 30,000 square-foot building.
“Fortunately, as business continued to grow, several new remanufactured lines were added and three building additions have taken place over the years,” said Sulyma. “Today, our remanufacturing facility in Winnipeg covers over 50,000 square feet, where we remanufacture eight primary product lines.”
Though the exact date that Autoline opened its doors is not know, the company is acknowledging the milestone with celebrations throughout the year.
