Böcker – My way to the top

To be able to develop our cranes, hoists and lifts on an ongoing basis, we not only observe the latest technical developments in the market, but also enter into close communication with representatives from a wide variety of industry sectors, including roofers and carpenters. We do this because we can only develop construction cranes and hoists that not only meet the expectations of our customers, but actually surpass them, if we know the specific needs of the trade and industry. With some success apparently, because our customers consider us to be the leader in quality and innovation in the field of lifting technology.

Inclined lifts with knee joints from Böcker – The original

When it was launched, the first inclined lift with a knee joint from Böcker saved the roofing trade a tremendous amount of work. Even today, the trade can be seen to rely on the flexibility and long service life of the original. That said, heavy and bulky loads also need to be transported in furniture logistics and not only on construction sites. Böcker furniture lifts are equipped with hinged and swivelling furniture platforms and score highly with their low loading heights and resulting ease of use.
