GAL (GAL Manufacturing Corp.) is a company that manufactures elevator fixtures, elevator door equipment and elevator controllers. GAL was established in 1927, and GAL stands for the last names of the founders, Glaser, Abramowitz, and Leon.
GAL is notable for manufacturing its elevator fixtures, from vandal resistant to ultra custom looks variations demanded by the most high end elevators. GAL only manufactures two fixtures product line; the JET PLUS and B-Series. Their fixtures are also provided on some Otis elevators throughout the late 1970s and in the early 1980s.

- GAL has partnered with Hollister-Whitney to sell traction machines with their controller equipment.
- GAL also supplies controllers, door interlock devices and door operators.
