Our mission

112 Years and Growing!

At Guilbert Express, what some organizations refer to as "know-how" goes beyond simple technical background, and is enriched by what is called in French "savoir-etre", or an understanding of the best way to operate, a concept that could be defined as a set of attitudes which play a large part in the moral values of the organization in undertaking its business. Customer satisfaction, an absolute priority and we have created this site to better serve your needs.  World wide service, innovative products, premium quality and a family run business attitude...that is Express!  

The Only Revolution in Shrink Wrap Tools in Decades

For more than a century Express brand products have been used by numerous professionals operating in very varied activity sectors: 


All of this experience in these business areas has helped us think out of the box.  Starting with the Raptor heat gun in 2011, we have developed the all new Hornet tool, specifically designed for shrink wrapping projects.  This is the first new set of tools for the Shrink Wrap Industry since 1970 and our product line is still growing!
