Aiming to become “Truly the Global No. 1 Hoist Manufacturer”

Since our foundation in 1932, we, at KITO, have been building the deep trust of our customers as a leading company in material handling equipment, which is indispensable for lifting, transporting and securing various objects. KITO’s electric hoists such as chain blocks, lever blocks, rope hoists and cranes, which are used around the world, in the U.S., Europe and Asia, as well as in Japan, are highly regarded and consistently meet customer demands for the improvement of safety and productivity in a highly sophisticated manner.
”Value both standard and customized products:” This is our business motto, which has been passed down to us from our company founder. The demands of our customers are never simple. Therefore, we have always placed high priorities on both launching products that are standardized to reflect the greatest common denominator and flexibly responding to particular needs.
KITO has grown from a domestic company to a global business network that includes 19 overseas subsidiaries. In order to become “Truly the Global No, 1 Hoist Manufacturer” that will win the recognition of “KITO = Reliable Brand,” the KITO Group will continue to do its best and take on as many challenges as possible.
