The history of KITO begins back in 1932 with a small factory in Omori, Japan. KITO developed its first electric chain hoist just after World War II. In the period after, the Japanese economy developed tremendously - and although the country also experienced recessions, KITO steadily maintained the company's focus on constantly developing smaller, lighter, safer and more durable products. Today KITO delivers its quality products to the whole world and is today one of the world's most trusted brands in cranes and hoists. View more about KITO in the video below that was produced in connection with the company's 80th anniversary.
