Peacock History

Over 100 Years of Success!

In 1897, Wajax Industrial Components was founded in Montreal by Francis Peacock and his three brothers. They serviced industrial companies of all sizes and endeavours in Canada, from the maintenance and repair of mechanical equipment to the supply of all types of industrial products.

Success was marked by steady growth which quickly made Peacock a national organization with an international reputation for quality. Their dedication to customer needs has earned Peacock an enviable reputation that is based on a primary goal: to identify customer needs, then meet them better than anyone else.
