MANHEIM, PA--(Marketwired - Feb 5, 2014) - Industrial hoist manufacturer excellence was recently honored in a ceremony held at the Harrington Hoists, Inc. headquarters in Manheim, Pennsylvania; Allyn Mark, host of Industry Visions Industrial News, presented the 2013 American Industrial Innovation Award to Harrington's COO, Carlo Lonardi who received it on behalf of Harrington Hoists, Inc. and their parent company KITO CORPORATION. The award was presented for Harrington's contributions to industrial innovation in lifting solutions and for production expansion at their Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania facility which resulted in the creation of more American jobs.
Harrington's new 100,000 square foot Elizabethtown facility known as E-Town is dedicated to the repatriation of manufacturing for products made in the U.S.A., replacing work that was previously done in Japan. Expanding the Harrington footprint with this new facility has created a boom for new American jobs and opportunities for local vendors.
Among this year's many innovative achievements, Harrington has raised the curtain on their new TNER theatrical and concert hoist line, entering into the market sector of stagecraft technology. In a prior interview for Industry Visions Industrial News, Carlo Lonardi commented on Harrington's new endeavor. "Harrington is proud to bring our expertise in lifting solutions to the entertainment industry," said Lonardi. Lonardi continued, "We have been the undisputed leader in lifting solutions for the world of industry, and now in a bold move, Harrington is entering the entertainment market that has been denied Harrington/Kito technology for decades. Our TNER theatrical hoist is going to bring a new dimension for riggers at theatres and concert halls where designers and stage and set crews demand flexibility and creativity for various venues and events. The TNER is the ultimate entertainment hoist that will meet the criteria of durability, reliability and portability for shows that are constantly on the move. At Harrington our slogan is 'Join The Revolution.' The revolution, as we call it, is all about new products. I want all of the people in the entertainment industry to know they have some great new options on the way to them from Harrington with our new TNER hoist!"
