Ackerman Industrial Equipment, Inc.
A brief history
In January, 1989, Ackerman Industrial Equipment began operations after Mr. George F. Ackerman purchased the former Atlas Industrial Equipment Company of Gibsonburg, Ohio. The newly formed company was only the second dealership to distribute Nissan (UniCarriers) Forklifts in the Toledo area since 1971.George’s oldest son, Paul Ackerman, has served as company President and became sole shareholder in January, 2006.
The business was moved from Gibsonburg to Oregon, Ohio, to the former site of the George F. Ackerman Company. There, it operated until November, 1993, at which time the business moved to its present location at 300 Mill St. in Curtice, Ohio, where both Ackerman Companies now share the same physical address.
