About Malmberg:

A Proud Tradition of Excellence

Look at any truck in the Ottawa area and it probably has a part supplied, rebuilt or installed by Malmberg Truck Trailer Equipment Ltd. That’s because Malmberg has been in the automotive business since its doors first opened in 1923.

In the last 95+ years, Malmberg has expanded and grown. The company that was once a single brake service station has become the Ottawa area’s leading specialist in the heavy-duty automotive industry. Today, Malmberg has over 70 staff in three locations in Ottawa and Gatineau.

A fully bilingual organization, Malmberg proudly maintains the principles of quality and service that has allowed it to become the largest distributor of parts to customers in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. In fact, some suppliers have been doing business with Malmberg since it first opened in the 1920s.

But, while Malmberg is focused on continuous improvement, some things haven’t changed and never will: its commitment to service.

Quality truck & trailer parts, unparalleled customer service and a dedicated and specialized staff all ensure the Malmberg name continues to be synonymous with excellence.
