Thombert was founded in 1946 in Newton, Iowa, and began producing polyurethane wheels and tires in 1958. Since our founding, it has been our objective to offer users of electric forklift equipment the longest lasting products at the lowest cost.

Thombert is now the world’s largest producer of polyurethane wheels and tires by volume. Lift truck manufacturers and dealers agree that Thombert is the most requested brand in the material handling business. Whether it is a small warehouse operation or a large distribution facility, Thombert is able to improve warehouse productivity and lower cost.

Even though Thombert products are regarded as the best, we never stop improving. Thombert is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified. We believe that continuous improvement and sustainability is imperative for the success of our business today and in the future.

By investing in our business and people, we believe that we can continue to lead the material handling industry in polyurethane wheels and tire technology.
