An Industrial Hoist Hook Is Fastened to New South American Hoist Markets: The New Kito Americas Brand, WVSN Reports

MANHEIM, PA--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) - Industrial hoist sales growth is poised to rocket in South America with a new hoist brand for the evolving South American industrial marketplace.

The Kito Americas brand will make its debut in February 2011. The new logistics structure is a joint effort between Kito Corporation of Japan and Harrington Hoists, Inc. of Manheim PA. The decision on the new pursuit came after explosive sales growth that occurred in Mexico and Central America. "This is an exciting time for Harrington," exclaimed Carlo Lonardi, VP Sales & Marketing. "Harrington Hoists, Inc. has gotten the nod to service that market place. This is something totally new with our South American customers being the benefactors of this historic venture with Harrington's Kito Americas division operating with the Kito brand name to service South America from our Manheim, PA plant. At Harrington we have a strong sense of pride and that American work ethic that comes from manufacturing industrial hoists for over 140 years."

Appearing on the Industry Visions broadcast from the Harrington Hoists, Inc. training center, Jim Small, International Sales Manager continued discussion of the logistics benefits in the new joint endeavor between Kito and Harrington. "Our business relationships in South America will have that solid foundation of Harrington service.

"We will be able to assist on sales calls with the new sales representative in the area and support their efforts with the full cadre of Harrington contacts. Communication is critical in any international venture; our new customers will feel right at home with our Spanish-speaking staff in Manheim, PA along with our new market specific Spanish website.

"Another huge benefit for our new customers is the full line of engineering services we provide. Everything Harrington has to offer from test certifications to operating manuals will be available. One of the most important features of Harrington distribution in this new theatre of Latin America is fast service. New logistics that begin here at Harrington allows product to arrive in as little as a week's time. Customers will no longer have to wait for product shipments from Japan that naturally take longer. Harrington has always assumed the position of lead not follow; that's why we are one of America's oldest manufacturing companies and the world leader in hoist lifting solutions. South America is the latest territory to join the Harrington Hoists, Inc. / Kito Americas Revolution."
