- 87 Years of Material Handling Experience with the Federal Government -
Since 1930, Werres Corporation has been actively representing reputable manufacturers with our sales expertise to the Federal Government. The company began by selling office equipment to various Federal Government agencies at the end of the Depression.
Gradually Mr. Werres broadened his efforts by representing Bay City Steam Shovel Manufacturing Company from Bay City, Michigan to the US Army Corps of Engineers. Bay City, at that time, was a premier manufacturer of steam shovels in the United States. Werres’ Government Sales role expanded greatly at the beginning of World War II when Werres began providing materials handling equipment, as it was then known, to the Department of War.
Mr. Werres began this expansion first with The Rapids Standard Conveyor and Caster Company starting in 1942. From there Werres grew in its offerings of solutions to materials handling customers with the addition of The Raymond Corporation of Greene, New York in 1950. Raymond Corporation was the inventor of the narrow-aisle concept of forklift design with its original “straddle” type stand-up forklift.
