Bohl celebrates 90 years of superior service

Did you know that our company has been designing and building material handling systems for 90 years? In 1924, Henry Bohl founded Cleveland Tramrail Toledo Co. which built simple monorails and overhead cranes. His company quickly earned a reputation for its high quality, prompt service, and for always doing more than the customer expects.

Bohl Equipment Co. was founded in 1952 by Henry’s son Richard to handle forklift applications, offering customers a single source for most material handling needs. Bohl Equipment is a full line Hyster forklift dealer covering Northwest Ohio, Southeast Michigan, and Northeast Indiana. We also offer the Yale equipment line out of our Fort Wayne location.

Cleveland Tramrail Toledo became Bohl Crane in the 1980’s and specializes in overhead cranes and engineered handling systems. Our newest division, Bohl Machine, opened in 2013. While capable of machining and fabricating, Bohl Machine also designs and manufacturers engingeered lifting devices.

Our service, parts, and sales associates are trained material handling specialists ready to serve you efficiently and effectively. Our extensive in-house engineering separates us from our competitors. Our engineers are ready to tackle challenging service problems or new equipment applications. You can be confident in our ability to handle most any material handling requirement.

We take pride in being one of the oldest family-owned forklift and crane dealerships in the United States. Our dedicated staff have worked hard for generations to maintain Henry’s outstanding reputation and we are proud to have customers from the earliest years who remain loyal today.

Using Bohl as your single source for service and sales needs ensures consistent quality and saves you money and time. Give us a try, we will work very hard to earn your satisfaction.

Yours truly,
