Why Choose Trol-Mation

As a top distributor, both client and employee care are some of our highest priorities. We believe that good client relationships are fostered through integrity, clarity, and dedication to safety and quality. This emphasis translates over to the relationships we maintain with our employees as well, ensuring their voices are heard and their needs are always met. 

We exist primarily as a referral business, owing the majority of our success and client retention to the reputation we have forged for ourselves. This reputation is built upon our commitment to quality and clients alike. We provide exactly what they are looking for, emphasizing clear communication and timely delivery. 


Our History

Beginning in-home as a basement operation, Trol-Mation’s roots were largely founded in hydraulics, pneumatics, and instrumentation. Starting off with the singular product of hydraulic cylinders in the 1970s, founders Pete and Lucille Massaro initially gained traction by landing an account with General Electric. From there, the business grew to build product lines for OEMs in New York. This success expanded to further include explosion-proof pressure switches for pipelines across America and internationally. After that initial decade of grit and growth, Trol-Mation was finally on its way to maintaining its ground as a successful and established company. 



Now owned by Pete’s son Pat, and operated by long time employee Jason Robinson, Trol-Mation continues to evolve with the times. As the market and needs of our clients have changed, so have we. Trol-Mation is now the premier distributor and fabrication shop for designing, cutting, assembling, and shipping what has become the foundation of many automation projects, T-Slot aluminum extrusion. Of course, we continue to offer some of the strongest lines in pneumatics and automation. 

While other major sales companies and automation companies have faded away with time, Trol-Mation has sustained its success and solvency by maintaining our emphasis on personal, family-oriented business and client relationships.
