Privately owned the longstanding Manufacturer of manual pipe-handling tools for the oil and gas industry aims to diversify into new markets.
After immigrating to the U.S. from Germany, Norbert Vogler bought the manufacturer that evolved into BVM for $5,000 in 1956. "I borrowed the money from my sister," Norbert recalls.
He took on machining and tooling jobs before finding a focus in oil and gas, initially providing parts for pumps and motors on drilling rigs.
