A lot has changed since the company was founded in 1948. But one thing has remained constant: the quality of LIFTKET products - Made in Germany.

For three generations, company founder and genius Dietrich Hoffmann has set the standard for electric chain hoists used around the world today. The horizontal arrangement of motor and transmission as well as the patented safety brake clutch system are just two examples. The spirit of innovation, the highest standards and attention to detail are what has distinguished LIFTKET hoists for over 70 years. Several hundred thousand LIFTKET electric chain hoists prove this impressively on the international stage.
