We’re Evolving for the Better – So is Our Commitment to You

Our story began in 1962, when Otto Wolter set out to help customers keep their material handling equipment fleets operating at peak efficiency. Along the way, we’ve been evolving constantly. Not to be bigger. But to be better. We continue to expand our offering of products and services, as well as our territory. All to ensure that you get the ideal solutions to your specific operational challenges.

  • Put a productivity toolbox to work for you that’s the envy of the industry
  • Benefit from technicians that receive an industry-leading 80 hours of training a year, so you can be confident they know your equipment as well or better than the people who built it
  • Access the collective ingenuity of our people – which spans a wide range of productivity-related disciplines – to reimagine what’s possible

As a family-owned business, we’ve been proud to serve you as the Wolter Group. But today, we’re so much more than a group of businesses. We are an extensive team with a singular focus – your long-term success.

We are Wolter. And we are the future of operational productivity.
