Galland is a french company which acquired more than 65 years of expertise in the rail sector especially in the catenary side for the manufacturing of overhead equipment (cantilevers, automatic tensioning device, section insulators, fittings, jumpers, droppers, rigid catenary).
This experience is the fruit of hours of research and development in our engineering office in close collaboration with our partners and customers.
Therefore the company is approved on a wide range of products for the conventional lines, high speed lines, metros and tramways.

The Galland Company was set up in 1946 by the Galland family.

In 1961, the founders of the company set up a new company: BELIER FOUNDRIES AND WORKSHOPS in order to answer the inquiries of our customers. Today the BELIER FOUNDRIES and GALLAND are owned by “Le BELIER PARTICIPATION holding” owned by the Galland family.
In 1987 they started to sell abroad with a first contract in China.
In 2003 the company moved to south west of France, close to Bordeaux, in a brand new factory and acquired a trade company in order to develop the foreign markets.
Since this date the strategy of Galland is to work even more in close collaboration with its partners and customers in order to share its almost 70 years of experience in catenary sector, helping them and developing specific and innovative solutions according to the local specifications or problematics.
Today Galland is working under the ISO 9001 certification with an average of 45 people.
