Apex Welding and Fabrication Inc. was established in 1946 in Cleveland Ohio, designing and producing custom steel fabrications for a variety of applications. On the shores of Lake Erie, Apex once cut a steel ship in half to increase its length.
In the nineteen fifties, Apex designed and manufactured the Overhead Crane Dumping Bucket that became a standard product still sold today. The Apex Self Dumping Lift Truck Hopper was added to the product line in the early sixties.
The hopper’s quick success led the company to focus on the material handling industry. Apex soon expanded the product line by adding the drop-bottom Multi-Dump Bucket (for crane or lift truck use), the Bulk Bin (also for crane or lift truck use) and the towable Tow N Dump Hopper.
Eventually, most of the custom fabrication was eliminated. However, that expert custom work experience allowed Apex to offer special sizes, when an “off-the-shelf” standard product size did not fit the customer’s particular application.
Apex is proud of its history which built a strong foundation for today’s success. Offering quality products and outstanding service to thousands of customers in the U.S. and beyond is our ongoing commitment.
