Samco’s History

Over 40 years of quality and innovation in roll forming equipment

Samco Machinery has evolved from a one-man operation with a single sales desk to a global enterprise with locations in Canada, India, Europe, and China.

We got our start with the vision of Joe Repovs, our founder, when he opened Samco’s doors in 1972 with only 200 sq. ft. of rented office space. A true family business, Joe’s wife Inga joined the business early on, and today his son Bob Repovs is CEO.

Samco fosters a culture of honesty and practices one simple rule every day: Attitude is everything. Learn more about our People Promise and our Products, and celebrate our 40 year + history with us!
