North American Bocker was established in 1985, by AG Zalal, North American Bocker's President. Owning a roofing company himself, AG recognized the typical contractors wants and needs.
In 1984, Mr. Zalal attended a NRCA Convention and bought his first Bocker Hoist. Mr. Zalal tested the machine for nearly a year and found that the Hoist was extremely reliable and versatile. After speaking to Albert Bocker, the manufacturer of the Bocker Company, Mr. Zalal came to the conclusion that he should begin to distribute the hoists throughout the United States and Canada.
Currently North American Bocker sells hundreds of items including: metal bending machines, soldering equipment, hand tools for slate and metal, hoists, and electric slate cutters.
