Welcome to Bohl Companies
Forklift, Crane, and Machine Divisions

Bohl Companies has a long history of doing more than the customer expects. Founder Henry Bohl was a teacher turned brass foundry manager, who was fascinated by the emerging technology of mass-production foundries. Envisioning a promising future for material handling, he formed his own company and began selling simple monorails. 95 years later, Bohl has evolved into three divisions: Crane, Equipment, and Machine.

Bohl Crane, Inc. - Founded 1924
While still offering the simple monorails Henry built his business on, Bohl Crane’s product line now includes specialized monorails, cranes, and engineered lifting devices that can move just about any product manually or automatically. Bohl Crane’s in-house engineering department is on hand to custom design a solution for any application.

Bohl Equipment Co. - Founded 1952
Following in his father’s footsteps, Richard Bohl founded Bohl Equipment Co. to handle forklift applications. Partnering with Hyster Company, Bohl Equipment became an authorized dealer and has been offering a full line of products ever since. To date, Bohl Equipment is proud to have added the Yale product line to all Ohio and Indiana locations.

Bohl Machine - Founded 2013
With the fourth generation leaping into the technological age, Bohl Machine offers a complete range of machining, fabricating and engineering services.

Operating under the philosophy of “Always do more than the customer expects”, Bohl is known for their high quality equipment and prompt knowledgeable service. Working together, Bohl Companies provides solutions for almost every material handling need.
