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.


During the last 14 days we were represented at 2 international trade fairs with a focus on wind energy. From 20 to 23 May we presented ourselves with our own booth at the AWEA WINDPOWER in the energy world capital Houston in Texas, USA. Nonstop we went on to Brazil with the purpose: Brazil Windpower in São Paulo. read on

The series production of our STAR VFD has started and first customers can already convince themselves of the numerous advantages. You can now order our 1st frequency-controlled electric chain hoist with an extremely short delivery time. Similar to our SPEEDLINE, the different models are available within only 15 working days.


At this point we would like to thank you for a thoroughly positive LogiMat 2019 with interesting technical discussions on a regional and international level. As is well known, after the fair is before the fair and so we will be presenting ourselves at this leading trade fair for the industry in the coming year and we are already looking forward to your visit to our stand at LogiMAT 2020!
