Hoists Direct recently announced that they will expand their product portfolio with the addition of new overhead lifting controls by Magnetek Material Handling. According to Joey Collins, Chief Executive Officer of Hoists Direct, large industrial users rely on Magnetek radio remotes in order to handle complex overhead cranes and hoists. He further explained that both the expanded hoist and the overhead crane controls product offerings complement their strong sales of overhead traveling cranes, bridge cranes, trolleys, as well as hoists, and crane parts to assist their customers with some of their complex lifting applications in industrial environments.
Hoists Direct offers a fast shipping for pre-engineered radio remote control products. In addition to that, they provide on-site capabilities as well to design custom crane radio systems. These are for trolleys, hoists, and bridge cranes. The company will add the new crane radio remotes and crane controls to the Crane Radio Controls. Furthermore, they will include it in the Magnetek section of Hoist Direct’s online catalog in the first quarter of 2017.
According to the company, the new overhead lifting controls supplement their position as a leading supplier of wire rope hoists, overhead cranes, and electric chain hoists by Beta Max, Budgit, Coffing Hoists, Columbus McKinnon, Harrington, J.D. Neuhaus, Lodestar, Shaw-Box, Street Crane and Yale.
Hoist Direct is a supplier of overhead cranes, industrial hoists, winches, and below-the-hook lifting devices. They also have dedicated in-house engineering resources. In essence, these allow the company to design custom below-the-hook and overhead lifting devices which are suitable for complex industrial hoisting applications.
