Bole is a manufacturer of precision injection-molding machines with clamping forces between 60 and 6,800 tons. Bole machines are assembled in Ningbo, China. The machines are manufactured with high quality components most of which are sourced from Japan, Europe and the USA. The machines were designed by two ex-chief engineers from Engel and are of very high quality. The factory produces over 25,000 machines on an annual basis (#2 in the Asia) and they have machines in over 60 countries around the globe.

Bole North America headquartered in Scottsdale and is co-located with Treger Financial and KD Capital Equipment, also of Scottsdale, which specialize in the financing and sale of used plastics injection molding and CNC machining equipment.

Todd, an expert in plastic injection molding, tooling and medical device manufacturing was named Bole North America’s President in April of 2017. He is now managing sales efforts while developing a Bole North America sales representative and service network across the U.S. and Canada. The Scottsdale based headquarters also has a fully outfitted showroom for demo and training purposes as well as a full inventory of spare parts.

They project their sales to double in 2018 and again in 2019. Bole North America is also engaging in an aggressive marketing campaign with many trade magazine editorials and advertising. Additionally, Bole North America will be taking its machines on the road to MD&M (Medical Device and Manufacturing show) in Anaheim, CA Feb. of 2018 and NPE (National Plastics Expo) in Orlando, FL May of 2018.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Breaking into the U.S. market with a machine built overseas is not easy. Customers have the perception that service, support and spare parts will not be readily available. Now that we have a full inventory of spare components in Scottsdale and a service network around the U.S. our customers are becoming more receptive and our name is becoming widely known.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Bole North America – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Our reputation sets us apart from the competition. We pride ourselves in customer service, support and training after the sale. Our close alignment with KD Capital and Treger Financial also gives us a unique advantage over other machinery dealers. We are able to provide a “one stop shop” for trade-ins, and financing of new equipment.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
With sales growth expected to double the next two years over, we will be adding additional service and sales support across the U.S. Additionally, we are going to add two more showroom/training facilities. One will be located in the Northeast while the other will be located in the Southeast.
