Hello, my name is Marshall Cromer. I'm "The Forklift Boss"!

I’ve been in the Forklift Industry now for over 40 years. I started selling forklifts when I was 22. Since then I've bought and sold over 10,000 forklifts. In the process, I’ve learned a few things about our industry and what customers need to do their work.

After 45 years in our industry, and owning my own business for 32 years, I sold my business to GNCO in May 2021. GNCO is a holding company which operates several material handling companies. Towlift, Inc. is their flagship in Cleveland, OH.

We now operate as Cromer, Inc., and our branding for Cromer will continue to grow across the Western U.S. I have great managers driving our company to another level. As GNCO's Western States Consultant, I will continue to help customers receive the best products and the best service in our industry. All our products are Tier 1, and it's my job to make sure customers will be satisfied on every order.

We Have Your Forklift, At Your Price

At your local Cromer facility, you'll find new/used forklifts and material handling solutions from top-tier brands like BYD, Caterpillar, Jungheinrich, Doosan, Linde, Kalmar, Donkey, Princeton, and Sellick.

In 2020, we acquired two companies in the Las Vegas, Nevada region. This added great team members to the Cromer family, and expanded our service area across 2 states.

We are a BBB (Better Business Bureau) A+ rated company—the only California/Nevada company in our industry to say that. I'm truly fortunate to have a team who puts our customers first. We work hard to bring you great products, service with respect, and a helpful rental team.
