 group pictureDear Customer/Prospect: 
Belcorp is celebrating our 25th anniversary this year !  We feel this occasion provides us with an opportunity to tell you who we are and what we can do for you. 
The organization has grown from the two original partners, Ed Kraft and Larry McGovern who, in 1986, formed Belcorp after being in business together as Kraft/Lamco Material Handling Co. since 1981. 
Ed and Larry's combined experience of over 80 years in material handling and packaging equipment sales, has resulted in the expansion of Belcorp into a thriving company with sales offices in Cincinnati, Columbus, Northern Kentucky and Chicago.  Pictured above is the sales staff of today.  Read on to learn about each individual and Belcorp's unique service capability that sets this company apart from the average equipment sales organization. 

The Principals and their "principles" 
Ed Kraft and Larry McGovern

In 1974, Ed and Larry renewed their friendship from college while they both worked for Clark-Pope Material Handling Equipment Co. In 1981, they formed the Kraft/Lamco Material Handling Co. and began to realize there was a growing need for complete packaging and handling equipment expertise in the rapidly growing consumer product manufacturing and packaging industry. The concept of using a single source to provide design, equipment selection and oversee installation, was the basis for forming Belcorp Inc. in 1986.
Belcorp is built on the framework of personal integrity and dependability.  Growth has resulted from a basis of reliable representation of strong, high quality equipment manufacturers representing a wide range of products to fill customer requirements for complete service in total packaging installations for many types of customer specifications.
