"Designers and Manufacturers of World Class Quality Contruction Equipment"
Welcome to Tovel Manufacturing!

At Tovel, all of our products can be manufactured to your exacting specifications.
Tovel was founded in 1970 as a company that initially manufactured a line of mortar/plaster mixers and engaged in the repair of machinery, mostly forklifts. The founders of Tovel had considerable experience in machinery and vehicle maintenance, repair and modification, which they applied to satisfy their customers' requirements.
As time passed, our original clientele requested rough terrain forklift products that were better designed to meet their needs. With these customers' needs in mind, we developed and sold the first Tovel Model TS 6-22-18 heavy-duty two-wheel drive straight mast forklift unit. This was the start of the Tovel Rough Terrain Forklift business, which has evolved today into three product lines: Rough Terrain Telehandler products, Rough Terrain Straight Mast Forklift products and the Mortar/Plaster mixer products.
Tovel has been very successful with its products lines and operates its business today in a modern, fully equipped 40,600 square feet of manufacturing, engineering and office facility located in Concord, just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Company & Family Values
Throughout its existence, Tovel has had "Family Values" at the core of the company. Customers are seen as long term clients and treated on a personal basis. Each sale is guided by the principles of fair value and long term satisfaction, with the machine operating at or beyond customer expectations. Every machine is designed to exceed the required specifications, thoroughly inspected for quality during production and tested upon manufacturing completion to ensure that the machine we manufactured meets or exceeds our customers' expectation.
The Tovel Philosophy
The performance of all Tovel products is dictated by the design philosophy utilized to manufacture each machine to meet our customers' needs. We have designed our standard products lines to meet the typically needs of the industry, but in addition we can fully customize the standard designs to meet the unique requirements of individual customers. As a result, Tovel has become known as the company that can manufacture Rough Terrain Telehandlers and Rough Terrain Straight Mast Forklifts to meet any customers' needs. Beyond the industry requirements for safety, reliability, ergonomics and esthetics, the over-riding priorities for Tovel products are that they must be rugged (robust), simple, serviceable and meet the customers' needs. Here are a few comments on our Philosophy about Tovel machines being Rugged, Simple and Serviceable, and our capability for Specialty Machine Designs.
Rugged relates to the equipment's ability to overcome the most difficult applications and handle the maneuvers of the most experienced operators. With a Tovel machine, when the job needs to be completed, challenges such as sand, rain, mud or snow will be overcome. The design of the Tovel machine incorporates heavier plating than competitors' products, along with components having specifications that exceed the applications requirements. A Tovel machine is made of All-Steel construction, with no plastic or fiberglass exterior panels which reflect normally occurring minor impacts more prominently.
Simple refers to the lack of superfluous complexity in the various systems on a Tovel machine. As much as possible. a Tovel machine is designed to rely on "tried and tested" technology and methods rather than catering to hi-tech for the sake of trendy technology. Controls are at the operators' fingertips, with intuitive location for handles, switches, gauges and levers. There are no additional plastic covers in the engine compartment to hide components, and the hydraulic lines are direct runs without breaks and complicated routing. Where technology provides benefits, such as environmental engine controls and joystick functionality, they have been incorporated into the product line to enhance capabilities.
Serviceable stems from expertise gained by manufacturing standard and industry specific equipment for customers in a number of industries. Experience in the automotive, agricultural, construction, industrial and marine industries coupled with hands on knowledge of servicing various makes of machinery designed for all of these industries, enabled the Tovel engineers to design Tovel product lines for easy access to all routine service points. Our belief is that a product that is easy to service will run longer, be more reliable and have a lower cost to operate.
Specialty Machine Designs has evolved over time through our customers' explanation of the needs they have for a machine designed to meet a specific job or repetitive set of requirements. The Tovel standard product lines are designed with flexibility and our manufacturing process is designed to allow us to manufacture a standard designed machine or a customer specific designed machine at any time. We like to ask our customers; "tell us what you do; and we will meet your needs!" We take pride in listening to our customers, and through our collaborative effort, customizing their machines, and then delivering their machines to exceed our customers' needs.
Whether you are in the market for a Rough Terrain Telescopic or a Rough Terrain Straight Mast Forklift Tovel has earned the reputation as the company that can be relied upon to deliver a standard machine design or a specialty machine design for all your material handling needs.
