As we venture into the warehouse, occupying around 30,000 square feet, we are greeted by rows upon rows of meticulously organized storage, boasting approximately 3,000 pilot positions. What sets Galway apart is its seamless integration with US plants, ensuring streamlined processes and systems aligning with its Plano and Canton counterparts.

Galway’s commitment to global standards shines through as all sites, including this one, proudly hold TL9000 and ISO 9001 certifications for quality management systems. Environmental standards are met with ISO 14001, while cybersecurity protocols are fortified with ISO 27001 compliance.
