"Our lifting technology scores not only in terms of sustainability and safety, our equipment also leads the way when it comes to digitalisation. The innovative customer portal BöckerConnect, for example, provides all relevant data of the networked cranes at a glance and enables even faster service thanks to remote diagnostics."

A familiy business

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 700 employees we strive to make sure we do not lose sight of our traditions and after more than 65 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.


To be able to develop our cranes, hoists and lifts on an ongoing basis, we do not only observe the latest technical developments in the market, but also enter into close communication with representatives from a wide variety of trades, 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.
