Raise your world

We help elevate our customers, employees, channel partners, and our industry


Our customers depend on us

Our #1 priority – there is no room for error when people’s lives are at risk


Quality is evident in everything we do, design, manufacture, and touch


Harrington’s single most important objective is to safeguard the hardworking people who use our products. That’s why our steel shells are stronger, our chains are sturdier, and each and every Harrington component can better withstand punishing, real-world conditions.


We design Harrington hoists to thrive in some of the world’s most abusive environments. In the United States of America, our gear is used everywhere from the depths of potash mines to the do-or-die conditions atop a wind turbine 300 feet in the air. Wherever we go, Harrington is relied on to get the job done.


Harrington hoists are world-recognized for being the last ones lifting, the last ones hanging, and the last ones pulling. Decades of specialized engineering and on-the-job testing have given our team industry-leading intel on how to create the world’s sturdiest hoists, component by component.
