As early as 1877, Yale produced the first manual chain hoist with a load pressure brake - a design principle that is still used today. In 1936, hoist production in Velbert begins with the production of the world-famous PULLIFT®. Delivered ready for use, the devices are used in a variety of industrial and commercial sectors worldwide: in construction, mechanical engineering, transport, energy & water management, petroleum & gas and paper production. The application-oriented range as well as all innovative new and further developments of Yale products are constantly raising the bar in terms of quality, reliability and safety. The wide range of products includes hoists, cable pullers and cranes, load handling equipment and weighing technology, hydraulic tools, heavy-duty load moving systems, pallet trucks and stackers, textile lifting and lashing equipment.
Our product portfolio gets regular updates with new or improved products.
