Back in 1947, Magline, Inc. was founded to “make things out of magnesium,” because products made from magnesium would offer unrivaled strength and lightness. That was a pretty forward-thinking idea back then, and paved the way to help people do their jobs more safely, with greater productivity, and with increased versatility.
Our very first product was a modular magnesium hand truck. Customers liked what they saw and how the product handled—and Magliner® hand trucks caught on rapidly. That innovation more than 65 years ago led us to design and develop additional material handling equipment. Like its predecessors, each new Magline product introduced had to prove that it was high-performing, durable, and would enhance workplace safety.
