ABOUT RGC
our evolution

The company was started before the turn of the century by Jacob Reimann and was located on the site of the Lafayette Hotel in downtown Buffalo, New York. He sold wooden ladders, but was primarily a general contractor, building the historic Holy Trinity Church on Main Street and the old Buffalo Library. After Jacob's death in 1898, his sons Louis and Albert carried on the business. When the hotel was built - the business was moved to North Division Street - where the city bus terminal is now located.

In the years that followed, the company - then operated exclusively by Louis - concentrated on the manufacturing of special ladders, made at their Division Street facility.

 
 
our evolution
 

In 1946, Howard Reimann and Roland Georger purchased the business and over the next few years introduced boat lifts, power hoists, scaffold brackets, ladder hoist frames and continued their consulting and engineering business. The business outgrew the North Division location and in 1955 they moved to a newly built, 6,000 square foot plant at 1849 Harlem Road.

When both Reimann and Georger were ready to retire in 1972, they looked for a buyer who would run the business with the ideas and principles they had started. In a short period of time, they decided to sell the operation to Emil Von Dungen, Inc.

The company has enjoyed continued success and further expansions over the years since Emil took over the manufacturing company. Many innovative, new products have been introduced including today's present line-up of hydraulic construction products, new hoists as well as personal watercraft lifts.
