Our Company History

BHS was founded in 1979 by William M. Huber, who recognized the importance of lift truck efficiency in warehouse and industrial settings. Minor inefficiencies can have a dramatic effect on overall productivity, and better battery room practices could provide operations with immediate results.

Mr. Huber established BHS to provide a dedicated resource for battery extractors, wash equipment and other essential battery room products. Each new product was meticulously engineered for efficiency, safety and cost effectiveness, and BHS established a strong reputation while gradually expanding its offerings.

Today, BHS is the world’s largest manufacturer of forklift battery changers and other battery handling equipment. We take pride in our innovative products, and through advanced engineering practices and extensive product testing, we remain dedicated to the principles that built our business.
