Yale is the leading brand for standard manual hoisting equipment in Europe. As early as 1877, Yale produced the first spur-geared hand chain hoist incorporating the Weston screw-and-disc type load brake – a design principle which is still used today. In 1936, hoist manufacture started in Velbert with production of the world renowned PUL-LIFT.


The product range as well as all new and further developments of Yale in the individual product sector constantly raise the benchmark quality, reliability and safety.

The comprehensive range of products includes hoists, balancers, cranes, load hoisting tackles and crane weighers, hydraulic tools, load moving systems, material handling equipment, textile lifting and lashing equipment as well as personal protection equipment.


The prominently yellow products, which are delivered ready for operation, are used world wide for the most varied industrial and commercial applications.
