Sales of Kito RY Wire Rope Hoists Top 100
Tokyo, Japan, August 10, 2016 - Industrial hoist and crane manufacturer Kito Corporation (Head office: Nakakoma-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture; President: Yoshio Kito) announces that its RY wire rope hoist, a product the company designed, developed and first introduced in Japan on April 1, has sold over 100 units as of August 1. In addition to the current 2.8-tonne short-headroom model, more models are on the way to broaden the line, which will soon go to market in Thailand and Brazil.
Positive comments keep coming: "Kito's original VFD (variable frequency drive control) minimizes load swing," "a broader product line is anticipated." Kito incorporates customer requests and ideas into product development and marketing to continue providing the product that customers can feel safe and confident using.
