The AVL Group of Companies was founded in 1998. Hamilton Metal Works® (H.M.W), the founding company of the group, focused primarily on large custom fabrications and machining. In 2006, H.M.W. changed its name to AVL Manufacturing™, adding full assembly, project management, and single-source supply chain services to its portfolio. AVL Manufacturing has now transformed into one of Canada’s largest privately-owned engineering, manufacturing, and assembly facilities.
