A modern engineering enterprise introduces itself

Much has changed since the company was founded in 1948. One thing, however, has always remained thesame: The quality of LIFTKET products – Made in Wurzen, Germany.

Over three generations, the company‘s ingenious founder Dietrich Hoffmann has set the standard for electricchain hoists used worldwide today. The horizontal arrangement of engine and gearbox as well as the patented safety-brake coupling system are just two stellar examples. The spirit of innovation, adherence to only the highest standards and attention to detail have been the hallmarks of Wurzener Lifting Equipment for more than 70 years. In keeping with this philosophy, the needs of both our customers and partners are at the core of our endeavors.

This spirit is influential in shaping and designing LIFTKET products, making them the best on the market. Hundreds of thousands electric chain hoists in action across the globe bear an impressive testimony of faith in our products.

As one of the world‘s oldest and largest manufacturers of electric-chain hoists LIFTKET will respond to an increasing demand by optimizing and expanding its own production capacities.

We are shaping the future as we speak, so that we will continue to be your number-one choice tomorrow.

LIFTKET moves – safely and everywhere, and any load of up to 25,000 kg and 200 meters.

Around 250 employees in the heart of Germany ensure that thousands of LIFETEKS leave our plant every month. Every single electric-chain hoist was
designed, developed, produced and tested here with sufficient load bearing capacity. A unique ID makes it possible to trace exactly when a particular electric chain hoist was built – and who built it with which materials – even after 10 years.

Numerous customers and OEM partners in over 65 countries rely on LIFTKET quality products. Safety, durability, ease of maintenance, service and a fair
price/performance ratio are particularly valued.

A worldwide network of service and sales partners also guarantees short distances and fast availability of spare and wear parts. As early as 1953, we already
focused exclusively on the production of electricchain hoists – for any conceivable application. A high vertical range of manufacture and almost limitless
customization capabilities ensure that you can work just the way you want, be it with LIFTKET branding or OEM products, standardized series or individual
