President's Message

Striving to be “Truly the Global No. 1 Hoist Manufacturer”

Material-handling equipment is indispensable when it comes to lifting, transporting, and securing just about anything. That's why when our customers choose KITO, we know it's because they trust us to provide safe and reliable equipment that helps them get the job done. It's a trust that we've worked hard to build ever since our company's beginnings in 1932, and today it has made us truly a global leader in material-handling equipment. Whether in Japan, the United States, Europe, or Asia, KITO products, including our chain hoists, lever hoists, rope hoists, and cranes, consistently meet or exceed our customers' demands for increased safety and productivity.

"Value standard products and customized products equally." This is the business motto passed down to us from our company founder; it helps us remember that the needs of our customers are never simple. KITO has always placed a high priority on launching not only standard products that are designed to reflect the most common needs of our customers, but also flexible products that satisfy very specific needs and situations.

Over the course of our history, KITO has grown from its roots as a domestic manufacturer into a global network that includes 12 overseas subsidiaries. We work hard to be recognized as "KITO = the reliable brand", and we look forward to meeting the continuing challenges of our customers as we strive to truly become "the Global No. 1 Hoist Manufacturer".
