SOUTH HOLLAND, IL–(Marketwired – June 21, 2016) – In a recent plant tour conducted for Industry Visions Industrial News, Ken Tarazoff, Plant Manager of Harrington’s South Holland Custom Lift Manufacturing Plant, showcased their cutting edge creativity in manufacturing custom lift and below-the-hook solutions. “Enthusiasm for excellence and having the creativity for understanding what a customer needs makes us stand out from the competition,” said Tarazoff. “We are leading the industry with our new programs; programs that allow us to maintain stock of standard custom lift and below-the-hook lifting devices for quick delivery to our customers.

Jim Key, Senior Design Engineer, works closely with customers in creating specialty equipment for different custom lift and below-the-hook lifting needs. “We offer complete design service,” said Key. “In my twenty years of structural and mechanical engineering, many times we have taken a simple sketch that may be on a dinner napkin and expand it to full drawings with fabrication on our shop floor. It’s that kind of interaction with our customers that keep them coming back. It’s also peace of mind. Our customers know that with everything we make, it is safety first! That’s not just a motto. We load test every product we construct here, no matter what the configuration. Sometimes that means we have to design a custom testing device for every custom designed product. If it’s made at South Holland, you can trust that it is safe!”

Bret Lussow, Executive VP of Business Development for Harrington Hoists, Inc., concluded the interview with his personal thoughts on the expansion and what it means to Harrington, Peerless and KITO customers. “We are proud to add this facility to KITO’s global portfolio of products. It fills the needs of our customers and makes Harrington, Peerless and KITO a one-stop shop for custom lift and below-the-hook lifting solutions. In helping our clients move their production needs at a faster, more efficient pace, Harrington again fills a critical need. That’s why the world of industry is Joining the Revolution.”
