LIFTKET forces a stronger presence on the British and Irish market

We are delighted to announce that John Jones has joined the LIFTKET family as the agent for the UK and Ireland.

Many people in the business will know John, he has gained extensive experience in the hoist industry, and has held various senior roles
during his career and worked with several well know world class hoist manufacturers and of course he was the Managing Director of Pfaff and Lift Turn Move ltd.

LIFTKET Hoffmann GmbH is an internationally renowned manufacturer of electric chain hoists for Industrial and Entertainment with loads
up to 25,000 kg. At the company premises close to Leipzig in Germany 250 employees, design, develop and manufacture lifting solutions for three
business areas: industry, custom and stage.

In-house, LIFTKET manufactures modular electric chain hoists for almost any application requiring safe and precise lifting of loads from 125kg to 25t and up to 200m lifting height. Founded in 1948 by Dietrich Hoffmann, the company initially developed agricultural equipment before specializing in electric chain hoists from 1953. He has set the standard for electric chain hoist used worldwide today by having invented the safety clutch/brake unit where the brake holds the load – not the clutch.

LIFTKET is amongst the global leaders and focuses on serving specialists in the lifting industry by not competing with them. Their mission is to
support their specialist clients with excellent products and strengthen them with competitive prices, technical and sales expertise so their partners can earn their living by serving customers fast and efficiently.

The company now sells to over 65 countries worldwide. The distribution in Great Britain and Ireland has until now been handled by a few business partners. LIFTKET expects a significantly stronger presence in the British and Irish market from the cooperation with John Joseph Jones.
