Solution of all lift height


electric chain hoists
125 kg – 12500 kg


Electric chain hoists from LIFTKET move any load from 125 to 25,000 kg and up to 200 meters high safely and anywhere. Numerous customers and OEM partners in over 65 countries rely on LIFTKET quality.

In the heart of Germany, around 300 employees ensure that thousands of electric chain hoists leave the factory every month. Every single one of them was designed, developed, produced and tested with sufficient load bearing capacity.

A unique ID makes it possible to trace exactly when a particular electric chain hoist was built by whom and with which materials – even after 10 years.

Since 1953 we have focused exclusively on the production of electric chain hoists – for any conceivable application. A high vertical range of manufacture and almost limitless costumization capabilities ensure that the electric chain hoists work just the way you want them to.


This year LIFTKET decided not to give Christmas presents to customers and instead supports the Kinderhospiz Bärenherz Leipzig e.V. with a donation. The official donation handover took place on 02 December 2019 in Leipzig with our CEO Jürgen Dlugi and our CFO Thomas Birke.

LIFTKET has been producing electric chain hoists since 1953. Thousands of chain hoists have left our factory in Wurzen every year since then. Even if our quality products convince by their longevity and low maintenance effort, spare or wear parts are needed from time to time.
