A family affair – At Böcker, tradition meets innovation
Since Albert Böcker, who was a master blacksmith, founded Böcker in 1958, the family-run company has committed itself to developing innovations in the field of lifting technology. It all began with the now-famous inclined lift with knee joint, which allowed roofers to transport tiles from the eaves and apex to the other side of the roof. Since then, we have been constantly working to adapt our products to the needs of our customers even more precisely and constantly set new standards in quality and safety.
In 1989, to the delight of the industry, Böcker entered the crane technology market with the launch of the first mobile truck-mounted crane in lightweight aluminium design, followed by the invention of the first aluminium trailer crane in 1997. 2005 saw the start of production of Böcker rack and pinion technology. Material and personnel lifts round off our extensive range of high-quality lifting technology products.
With meanwhile over 400 employees we strive to make sure we do not lose sight of our traditions and after more than 60 years, still remain loyal to the corporate philosophy of this third-generation family-owned business: Be it as a customer or an employee, people are at the centre of everything we do at Böcker.
