A modern engineering enterprise introduces itself

On 1 January 1948, Dietrich Hoffmann founded an engineering enterprise which was initially concerned with the design and production of agricultural machinery. The company introduced its first electric chain hoist to the market in 1953, and from that time on the production of hoists became the focus of the young company based in Saxony.

Nowadays, twenty-six years after its successful re-privatization, the company produces a wide range of LIFTKET hoists that enable the lifting of loads up to 25,000 kg for all areas of industry. They are all developed, produced and serviced by a team of highly motivated and innovative engineers, foremen and craftsmen. In addition to the development and production of our machines, the adaptation of our products to the customer’s specifications plays a crucial role for us and is an essential part of our company’s philosophy.

Today, LIFTKET hoists are used in nearly all of the industrialized countries in the world and pass the test under various operating conditions every day. Our worldwide network of service and retail partners ensures that all our customers receive the service and repairs they need.
