85 YEARS AND COUNTING
IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER.
Riekes has been in business for almost a century and have built our company on a foundation of integrity and service. From the original business of recycling bottles in a barn, we have continued to expand and grow, adding automation, hoist & cranes and a dazzling array of innovative solutions to meet customer needs. Including merging forces in 2019 with Bublitz Material Handling in Kansas City.
In addition to growing our product lines, we have also expanded our locations across the Midwest to ensure the best service for our customers. Our technicians average 15 years of industry experience and have been certified through the Yale Training and Knowledge Program. We understand that being the best means maintaining ongoing and rigorous training.
It is this commitment to service and training that makes us so good at what we do.
Today, we play an important role in providing effective solutions for warehouses, service departments, distribution centers and many others. We are proud to go home every night knowing we helped make our customers safer, more productive leaders in their own industries.
