We are 126 Years Bold

Boulter has been family-owned since its founding in 1892 by Thomas W. Boulter. The business was created to fill the local need for ice and coal delivery. The business evolved to incorporate local moving and carting with the use of two teams of horses and wagons. Over the next century, the business evolved and expanded beyond that initial concept. Boulter tailored its operations to focus on the needs of Rochester’s industries, manufacturers, and businesses.

Five generations later, Boulter is still the premier choice amongst today’s industry leaders when it comes to professionalism, punctual deliveries, and reliable services to meet current business demands and challenges. Headquartered in Webster, New York, Boulter serves the Eastern Region, predominantly New York State, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, with the capacity and ability to undertake projects anywhere in the United States.
