About B/A Products Co.

For over 40 years B/A Products has designed and developed products that went on to become industry standard for OEM’s and end-users of the Towing, Vehicle Recovery, Fire Rescue, Auto Transport, Industrial, Agricultural industries and more.


What began in a Hollywood, Florida storefront in 1978 started out as a simple idea; to build safe quality products. Mel and Enid Berman started by building chain assemblies, punching rubber sling straps and a few other basic products by hand in their small Hollywood, Florida garage. As demand and customer requests grew, items like cables, air tanks, switch panels, tow slings and door tools were added to the product line. A 1984 move to Maryland brought more space and a more centralized location, allowing better transit times to the growing list of nationwide distributors. Former President and Mel’s daughter, Lori Kauffman as well as future son in law Fritz Dahlin, joined the business in 1984 bringing fresh ideas and new products. B/A became an innovator in new safe practices as well as new and improved parts and accessories. In 1997, B/A designed and patented the popular 8-Point Tie-Down, which went on to become a standard for the Towing Industry. Lori’s husband Chip joined the company in 1998 and has led the diversification into areas beyond the towing and recovery market. Mel passed away in 2015 leaving his legacy with his children and the rest of his B/A family. Mel was later inducted into the Towing and Recovery Hall of fame for his contribution to safety and innovation in the towing industry. The B/A team is dedicated to building on Mel’s legacy of quality and safety for the automotive industries.
