Owner and president, Angelo Visco and general manager Fred Visco, recently joined forces with Traction to become Bolton and Barrie’s most important player in the heavy duty truck and trailer parts industry.
“Traction (a division of UAP) is a great company to be part of”, said Angelo. Their staff is very helpful and professional and we love their motto: “One Team – One Goal.”
After 13 years of specializing in industrial sales and service such as hydraulic hose and fittings, pneumatics, tools and hydraulic cylinder sales, Fred and Angelo were ready to expand into the trucking industry.
Knowing full well of Traction’s excellent reputation across the country, Angelo approached them about becoming an independent associate store which would carry their complete line of truck parts and accessories. He wanted to team up with a reputable company that had a solid track record in the industry and could help him expand his already busy organization. This all became a reality in May 2007 when Visco Industrial opened their doors to the Traction banner.

On August 1st, 2009, Visco Industrial again responded to their clients’ needs by offering a complete driveline and custom exhaust service. They can make or provide any part, no matter how big or small. “Adding the driveline service has made us a ‘one stop shop’ for all our customer requirements and has opened doors to other local industries,” said Angelo.
Traction-Visco’s driveline service extends to different industries such as agriculture, automotive, construction, forestry, mining and recreational vehicles. Their service for drivelines stretches from Toronto to Collingwood and Markham to Guelph including all points in between.
Angelo brought in a driveline expert, John Forbes, with over 20 years’ experience in manufacturing, repairing and balancing drive shafts, to run the operation. “With our new computerized ‘state-of-the-art’ equipment we can meet or exceed OEM specifications,” says Angelo.
We also manufacture custom exhaust products. We can make any shape, size or configuration, no matter what the application may be.
Throughout Traction-Visco’s recent expansions, the company continues to supply its clients with the goods and services they were originally known for. Hydraulic cylinder repair, and ‘while-you-wait’ hydraulic hose service.
Right beside Traction-Visco is a three bay heavy duty and automotive repair facility, Bolton TruckPro, a fully licensed shop with technicians that can do everything from an oil change to a complete engine overhaul. They have the space for any size car, truck or trailer.
