Galkin Automated Products was founded in 1908 by Joseph Galkin - a talented inventor and innovator with a passion for the sewn products industry. He saw that operators and plant managers were struggling with the limitations of their equipment, forcing operators to strain themselves to force the material through the conventional sewing machines to meet production goals.

He determined that standard sewing equipment needed to be customized to meet unique production requirements, and his first patented invention - the sewing machine puller - revolutionized the way operators and fabrics interacted with sewing machines.

Nearly a century later, the synchronized puller is as relevant today as it was then, and can be found in thousands of sewing factories across the world. Galkin continued to grow and thrive, by helping apparel and textile manufacturers meet production goals with specialized labor assisting devices and machines.
