BH North America is a fitness and furniture manufacturing company located in Southern California, USA. They manufacture and sell treadmills, bikes, elliptical trainers, vibration machines, and garage equipment.


BH North America is a branch of BH Group which began in 1909 as a steel manufacturer in Northern Spain. In 1919 BH decided to use their steel resources and focused on producing pedal bikes.


BH North America has four divisions, BH Fitness, BH Furniture, BH Shiatsu, and Bladez/Ion.

BH Fitness

BH Fitness began in the 1960s when BH Group saw a need for fitness equipment. Fitness lines include BH Fitness, BH Hi Power, BH Strength, and BH Vibration.

BH Furniture

BH Furniture has three sub-divisions:

  • the Garage subdivision includes the lines Ulti-Mate Garage Pro, Ulti-Mate Garage, Ulti-Mate Storage and MAXimum Garage. These lines are garage storage systems.
