History of the company

Mr. Roland Godbout founded in February 2002, the company Archimedes. A range of pneumatics and hydraulics products has been developed and it is now widely distributed throughout America. These products target manufacturers of equipment such has dump truck and roll off. These long-term efforts are the basis for developement which will now accelerate the upcoming launch of several new products.

Who was Archimedes?

Archimedes of Syracuse (287 BC – c. 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. Although few details of his life are known, he is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity. Among his advances in physics are the foundations of hydrostatics, statics and an explanation of the principle of the lever. He is credited with designing innovative machines, including siege engines and the screw pump that bears his name. Modern experiments have tested claims that Archimedes designed machines capable of lifting attacking ships out of the water and setting ships on fire using an array of mirrors.

Archimedes is generally considered to be the greatest mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest of all time. He used the method of exhaustion to calculate the area under the arc of a parabola with the summation of an infinite series, and gave a remarkably accurate approximation of pi. He also defined the spiral bearing his name, formulae for the volumes of surfaces of revolution and an ingenious system for expressing very large numbers
