Our History


It was over three decades ago when Jim Tasikas, Galaxy’s founder and President, began repairing motors in floor sanding machines. It didn’t take long for Jim to notice recurring repairs and to identify weak areas in design. He also appreciated the fact that contractors knew their sanding machines well and was determined to give them what they asked him for – a better machine.

What followed were years of innovations to floor sanding machines under the Galaxy brand with Jim’s dedication to excellence backing every one of them. As new products are developed and introduced into the marketplace, that commitment remains as strong as ever from Galaxy.
