who we are

The A.J. Gates Company was founded in 1918 by Augustus J. Gates, one of the founding fathers of the material handling industry. Gus Gates helped develop the lift truck we all know today. Through his unique vision of customer service and knowledge, he created The A.J. Gates Company.

The company was originally located in downtown Cleveland. We then moved to Solon to better serve the growing Cleveland Metropolitan Area. Our present location gives us excellent access to all freeways allowing us to better serve our growing customer base.

As we look to the future, we will continue the strong tradition of commitment to excellence for our customers.

If you are looking for a forklift dealer in northeast Ohio, visit The A.J. Gates Company. We can help with all of your parts, service, and maintenance needs, and we are proud to serve our community.
