About Galaxy Floor Sanding Machines

Galaxy has become a well known and respected name in the floor sanding industry due to the fact that they manufacture the most powerful and innovative floor sanders to date.

Galaxy Floor Sanding Machines was established by Jim Tasikas more than two decades ago. Jim Tasikas maintained and repaired various types of machinery, but primarily floor sanders. In doing so, he discovered many ways in which they could improve the design, flexibility and engineering of floor sanders in order to create what is now recognized as the best floor sander in the industry.

In order to protect the investment and engineering behind the machines, Galaxy patented their concepts and now have the leading edge over all competition.

While many floor sanding companies are struggling to survive in this competitive market, Galaxy has exploded onto the scene providing state of the art products to distributors across North America, Europe, and Australia.

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.
