Harrington Expands Into South America
Harrington Hoists Inc., Manheim, Pa., has increased its operating authority and expanded its geographic service area to include South America under the Kito brand. In doing so, Harrington has launched the newly created Kito Americas, a Kito brand to support these markets.
"This is an exciting time for Harrington," said Carlo Lonardi, VP of sales and marketing. "For the first time Kito Corporation has sanctioned our expansion into the South American marketplace. Our South American customers will be the benefactors of this historic venture as we begin servicing these markets from our Manheim plant."
Headed up by international sales manager Jim Small, the new venture will bring an increased level of service and improved delivery times to these markets. "Our business relationships in South America will have that solid foundation of Harrington service," said Small. "We will be able to assist on sales calls with the new sales representative in the area and support their efforts with the full cadre of Harrington contacts. Communication is critical in any international venture; our new customers will feel right at home with our Spanish speaking staff in Manheim."
