“We can handle it.”
This has been our motto since 1926, when the seeds of Garvey Corporation were first planted on a dirt road halfway between Philadelphia and Atlantic City. That’s the year our founder, Gordon Garvey, opened a gas station to finance his own machine shop. Before long, he had a thriving precision fabrication shop, which would soon become an industry-leading conveyor company.
Nearly 100 years later, Garvey remains a leader in the conveyor and accumulation industry, serving customers ranging from small breweries to the world’s largest manufacturers of food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and household products.
The Garvey name is synonymous with innovation and top-of-the-line modern design. The company is recognized as one of the world’s finest manufacturers of low-impact, multifunctional pressureless loop accumulation and conveyor systems to help customers optimize their production lines and maximize their throughput. Though much has changed since 1926, one thing has remained the same: our pledge that “we can handle it.”
Gordon Garvey takes the first step toward establishing the machine shop that would become Garvey Corporation.
