MANHEIM, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 --  Industrial hoist
manufacturing expansion is boosting American jobs in production and
warehousing at the new Harrington Hoists, Inc. facility in
Elizabethtown, PA. 
In a recent tour of the facility, Industry Visions interviewed Carlo
Lonardi, the Chief Operating Officer of Harrington Hoists, Inc., who
is overseeing its development. "Harrington's North American
manufacturing expansion will have a huge impact on the hoist and
crane industry as we know it," said Lonardi.  
Lonardi also said, "Harrington is one of the nation's oldest hoist
manufacturers dating back to the late 1800s and continues to be the
market leader in world lifting solutions for industry. To facilitate
our growth in the Americas we have recently acquired 100,000 square
feet of manufacturing and warehousing space in nearby Elizabethtown,
PA. It is at this new facility we will assemble hoist components and
package products made in the USA, replacing work that was previously
performed in Japan. We will have an assembly line that will perform
load testing of the product, chain cutting as well as packaging and
warehousing. This is great news because of the local jobs we will
create by sourcing hoist components locally and it increases our
ability to provide a superior hoist product with the 'Made In
America' label on it. The new property offers an excellent solution
to our resulting space needs at our headquarters in Manheim, PA where
we will continue operations as well. This expansion is also a
testament to the great personal relationship Harrington has with KITO
Corporation of Japan. KITO has given the additional responsibility to
Harrington Hoists, Inc. in that we may supply product to all KITO
subsidiaries around the world. Some say this expansion is happening
in a tough economic environment; that may be true, but it is an
expansion I am excited about because the investment is needed to
expand our growth in the North and South American markets."

facility is within 20 minutes' drive from Harrington's headquarters
at the Manheim, PA location. Harrington is a subsidiary of KITO
Corporation of Japan and distributes products in South America under
the KITO Americas Brand.
