To KITO PWB, a quality hoist is defined as having three elements: 


KITO’s single most important objective is to safeguard the hardworking people who use their products. KITO products are well engineered and designed with effective safety features. KITO hoist can safely withstand the punishing real-world conditions and last the test of time. 

Performance and durability 

KITO hoists are designed to improving productivity, provide efficient maintenance management and look to reduce the total cost of ownership over the hoist’s life.  


KITO hoists are built to perform for years of trouble-free service. They are robust and resistant to rough handling conditions. They continue to function well, even at fully rated capacities. Decades of specialised engineering and on-the-job testing has given the KITO team industry-leading intelligence on how to create the world’s sturdiest hoists, component by component.  

National Hoist Business Manager, Glenn Morgan, stands by the quality and engineering of the KITO hoist. “Honestly, there is no comparison on the market,” he said.  

To support the KITO philosophy in delivering unmatched customer and end user satisfaction, KITO PWB has its own dedicated customisation workshop based at the Australian National Head office in Victoria. This is supported by a specialist team of hoist technicians who build customised lifting solutions not just for the Australian market but also for the greater Oceania region.
