Kito to Open Sales of RY Series Electric Wire Rope Hoist
in North America
Industrial hoist and crane maker Kito Corporation (head office: Yamanashi, Japan; president: Yoshio Kito) will introduce its new RY Series Electric Wire Rope Hoists in North America in May.
For the North American launch, Kito won UL1340 certification, awarded only to top-class hoists in the US. Our concept is to provide high quality products at a competitive price.
Kito recently completed a three-center international production system, through which it works in close coordination with subsidiaries Harrington Hoists Inc. in the US and Jiangyin Kito in China. Making the most of the wide sales network of Harrington, which is handling final assembly and shipment, Kito hopes to further build its share of the North American market.
